Newt "The Digit" Feldenstein was a world renown thumb wrestler. The best poker and flicker the sport has ever seen: Adoring ringside crowds, luxurious lifestyle, and the green eyed envy of a world who-at very best- must remain contented to use their thumbs for the purposes of hailing cabs or showing approval at something.

But the quick hand of time spares no one...not even a famous "thumbsman." So, after years at the top of the game, a grim medical prognosis forces Newt into a career tailspin...he is sidelined, shunted aside, and forced to bear the taunts of any random, hungry, thumb-wrestling wannabee who strives to snatch the last vestige of Newt's thumb wrestling crown.

Broken in mind and body, Newt must make a choice... Quit the fight game outright, turn to performance enhancing drugs, or should he accept, adapt, and boldly embrace whatever life throws at him ... no matter whose thumb lies in wait for him at the other side of that next ring.

Thumb Wrestler 2 is in the can! We shot the 2nd Thumb Wrestler film awhile back and are in post production now. Luckily, we had the NY Premiere of the original Thumb Wrestler a couple of weeks ago, and we're hoping that it will still get some film festival recognition as we move into 2018. We'll continue to edit Thumb 2 and get it ready for sometime next year, but here are a few pictures from the production shoot of Thumb 2 for your viewing pleasure.
