GreeneStreet Films will produce Takedowns, the story of a deaf wrestler who overcomes a hardscrabble childhood.

Kevin Sullivan will direct the film; Patrick Aison is writing the screenplay. Casting announcements are expected shortly. Vareity says the story centers on the deaf grappler who grows up in a tough Bronx neighborhood to take a shot at a college wrestling career and the Olympics.

Takedowns is scheduled to go into production later this year.
