Carla Gugino and David Boreanaz are teaming to star in the basketball drama “Our Lady of Victory.”
This follows the true story of sassy newlywed Cathy Rush (Gugino), who becomes the head basketball coach at a tiny, all-girls Catholic college in 1972, a team with no gym and no uniforms.
She eventually leads the team to the first national championship in women’s basketball, while the school’s nuns fight to keep the owners from selling the institution and its land to developers.
Marley Shelton, Ellen Burstyn, James Rebhorn and Phyllis Somerville also amongst the cast. Boreanaz is playing Rush’s husband, Shelton will be a nun, and Burstyn will portray the mother superior.
Tim Chambers penned the script and will direct when production begins this week in Philadelphia.
