Sean Astin and Powers Boothe have agreed to star in the sports-themed indie film, The Final Season for State of Mind Films.

The film is based on the true story of the Norway, Iowa, high school baseball team that overcame daunting odds to become a powerhouse in the sport for more than two decades. The Hollywood Reporter says Boothe will play coach Jim Van Scoyoc.

Art D'Alessandro has written the screenplay. Filming begins at the end of this month in Iowa; there's no release date yet for The Final Season.
