Billy Ray is set to write and direct Hurricane Season for Universal Pictures.

The film is based on an upcoming documentary by Franklin Martin, Walking on Dead Fish. The Hollywood Reporter says this film will tell the true story of the football team at East St. John High School, near New Orleans that struggled with integrating displaced students from surrounding high school teams and trying to help rebuild their community after Katrina while fighting to become champions on the field.

There's no production schedule for Hurricane Season; a 2008 release has been scheduled.
