I’ll admit it…I’m a sucker for almost all of Disney’s sports movies, and a complete sucker for Kevin Costner’s forays into the genre, mostly baseball related (I adore ‘For Love of the Game’ in a way that few people seem to). This made a teaming up of Costner and the studio seem like only a matter of time, and according to The Hollywood Reporter here, that’s just what’s happening. The movie is called ‘McFarland’, and he’ll be the coach of a sports team in that town. After the jump you can see a little more on what the film is about, but count me in. I’m always down for sports flicks, and this likely will be no exception…
Here’s how the article describes the film’s story:
Another true-life tale, McFarland is the 1980s story of a coach living in McFarland, Calif., a predominantly Latino small town outside Bakersfield. The coach created a high school track team that overcame many social and physical hurdles to become champions.
