Walden Media is taking the true story of Frank and Isaac Gildea, and turning it into theatrical fodder. According to Variety, the Gildeas were the only father-son duo to ever play together on a college basketball team.
Frank Gildea was a college dropout. He left school in 1981 to raise his kids and support his wife. He rejoined his alma mater twenty years later. By that time, his son was also attending the same school. They joined the basketball squad together, and managed to win the first conference championship in 27 years.
There is no word on when the film will go before the camera.
