Kevin James is planning to star in the inspirational football-themed drama “44” for Alcon Entertainment and Warner Bros. Pictures.
Based on the true story of Joey Williams, James would play the 44-year-old father of four from Tennessee who returned to college to complete his degree and fulfill a lifelong dream of playing collegiate football.
He instead found himself competing alongside his college-aged son at the same university. Christopher Parker (“Heaven Is for Real,” “Mulan II”) will pen the script.
DeVon Franklin, Todd Garner, Lisa Kors and James are producing.
