Brandon Routh Tries Lacrosse In “Arrows”

“Superman Returns” star Brandon Routh is set to headline the underdog lacrosse-themed sports feature “Crooked Arrows” reports Variety.

The story follows a rag-tag Native American high school lacrosse team that is forced to join the local prep school league that is comprised of better trained and equipped rivals.

Routh will play the tribal chairman’s part-Native American entrepreneurial son who is tasked with coaching the reservation’s motley lacrosse team in the hopes that he’ll reconnect with his fellow tribe members.

Steve Rash (“Can’t Buy Me Love”) is directing from a script by Todd Baird. J. Todd Harris and Mitchell Peck are producing and shooting kicks off this July in Boston.
