Bruce Springsteen Gave Up Song Rights For Soccer Film
He was thrilled when Springsteen agreed - because the director had already put the touching song in the film's rough cut. Guggenheim, who is married to the movie's star Elisabeth Shue, says, "I've been to maybe 10 Bruce Springsteen concerts and never believed we would the rights for anything. I almost didn't put the song in the first cuts of the film because I didn't want to get people's hopes up. My brother-in-law, Andrew Shue, found a way to get him to give it to us.
"Bruce believes in films that are made in New Jersey and I think he believes in the story - he has daughters who play soccer. He just thought the song was perfect. I don't think any amount of money would convince him to give up a song if he didn't want to. It was all about representing what that song represents. The song was a gift. We didn't pay a lot of money. He believes in the state of New Jersey and he believes in our movie."
