Weisman & Shelov Create A Miracle

“George of the Jungle” and “D2: The Mighty Ducks” director Sam Weisman and writer Josh Shelov have boarded Walden Media’s basketball movie “The Miracle of St. Anthony” says The Hollywood Reporter.

An adaptation of sports columnist Adrian Wojnarowski’s 2005 book, it explores a year in the life of renowned Jersey City high school basketball coach Bob Hurley Sr., who has coached dozens of future college and NBA stars.

It centers on a year when Hurley fought to keep his school, St. Anthony’s, open while transforming a group of unprepared players into champions. Kerner Entertainment is set to produce.
