A Bit More Info on "The Gridiron Gang"

by | May 24, 2005 | Comments

ComingSoon.net shares a press release that divulges a little extra news regarding Columbia Pictures’ "Gridiron Gang," a sports drama based on a 1993 documentary of the same name. The Rock and Xzibit will star in a tale that’s "based on actual events about the creation of a football team within the confines of a juvenile detention camp."

Phil Joanou ("Three O’Clock High") is the director on the scene, and the adaptation duty goes to screenwriter Jeff Maguire ("Timeline"). "Gridiron Gang" will "tell the uplifting story of detention camp probation officer Sean Porter, who creates a high-school-level football team from a ragtag group of dangerous teenage inmates as a means to teach them self-respect and social responsibility." Sounds a bit like a junior version of "The Longest Yard," but we’ll have to wait and see.
