Father & Son Team Gildea Get Biopic

Walden Media & 20th Century Fox will make a college hoops feature based on the true story of Frank and Isaac Gildea, the only father-son duo to ever play together on a college team reports Variety.

Frank Gildea dropped out of college in 1981 to support his family, but rejoined his alma mater, College of the Redwoods, two decades later.

By then, his son was attending the school and playing for the basketball squad. The elder Gildea was able to finish out his eligibility, joining his son on the squad that won the school’s first conference championship in 27 years.

Brad Gann (“Black Irish”) is writing the script.
