Filmmakers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have joined forces to produce an adaptation of the 2012 documentary “Brooklyn Castle” which Jonathan Levine is attached to direct.
The story centers on a team of dominant chess champions who hail from the inner-city Brooklyn school I.S. 318, as budget cuts threaten to take the team away from these students.
Will Reiser (“50/50”) is writing the script based on Katie Dellamaggiore’s doco. James Weaver, Scott Rudin and Eli Bush will also produce.
