Whether or not this becomes an interesting film is up to you and your penchant for movies.

But Marty Sader and Laura Keys have created a somewhat compelling video on Kickstarter.com to get you interested in contributing to the making of "Monday Nights at Seven."

UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva and retired MMA legend Frank Shamrock are both attached to the project, as is Greg Jackson, Ed Soares, Gokar Chivichyan and Edward James Olmos.

"Monday Nights at Seven" is essentially a love story between father and daughter, with MMA as the backdrop. The unique thing about this film is that Sader, the screenwriter and actor, will fight in a real MMA bout (for Resurrection Fighting Alliance) and film it for the movie.

Watch the clip below for more.
