In a story from Variety, Emmett/Furla Films and Freedom Films are going to produce football drama Touchback. Brian Presley is starring and Don Handfield is directing.

Touchback (which is also written by Handfield), focuses on a high school football star's regrets and eventual realizations 15 years after his career-ending injury in a big game.

Also on the docket for Emmett/Furla Films and Freedom Films are "two high-profile multi-picture franchise projects, which are being held under wraps at this time and will star Presley as well."
