According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lost star Matthew Fox is joining Matthew McConaughey in McG's untitled Marshall University football project for Warner Bros. Pictures.
The movie is about events following the 1970 plane crash that killed members of the West Virginia-based Marshall football team, along with most of its coaching staff, sports commentators and many of its local boosters.
McConaughey already has been cast as a determined coach named Jack Lengyel, who tries to rebuild the team. Fox is playing coach Red Dawson, who works with Lengyel.
Thunder Road's Basil Iwanyk is producing along with McG and his Wonderland Sound & Vision shingle. Legendary Pictures is co-financing the movie, which is being executive produced by Brent O'Connor, Thomas Tull, Jeanne Allgood and Scott Mednick.
