A feature film based on Zach Bonner, the Valrico boy who set out on a mission to help homeless youth before he reached his 10th birthday, will premiere in Tampa this week.

"Little Red Wagon" was directed by Hollywood veteran David Anspaugh, best known for the inspirational, sports-underdog classics "Hoosiers" and "Rudy."

The movie, which will play Friday through Sunday at the AMC Veterans Expressway 24 in Tampa, follows Bonner's story from when the 6-year-old began gathering Hurricane Charley relief supplies in his little red wagon, to the first leg of his Walk Across America, a walk from Seffner to Tallahassee.

In 2010, the real-life Bonner completed a 2,478-mile march from LazyDays RV Campground in Seffner to Los Angeles, in order to raise attention to the thousands of homeless children in America.

The movie stars Chandler Canterbury ("Knowing," "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button") as Bonner. Anna Gunn, best known as Skyler White on AMC's "Breaking Bad," stars as Bonner's mother.

A trailer for the movie is available online at www.littleredwagonthemovie.com. For a full list of show times, visit http://www.amctheatres.com
