Walden Media Making Father-Son Biopic



Walden Media will develop a biopic of Frank and Isaac Gildea, the only father-son duo to ever play together on a college basketball team.

Shifting attention to fact-based property, Walden Media is on the track to set up a biographical feature based on the true life account of Frank and Isaac Gildea, the only father-son duo to ever play together on a college basketball team.

The older Gildea gave up his college education in 1981 to support his family, but rejoined his alma mater College of the Redwoods two decades later. At that time, his son had already attended the institution and played for the basketball squad. The man ultimately finished his eligibility, joining the younger Gildea on the team that led the college to win its first conference championship in twenty-seven years.

Hired to pen the script for the project is Brad Gann, who recently wrote Walt Disney Pictures' "Invincible" with Mark Ciardi and Gordon Gray producing alongside Orly Anderson. Meanwhile, Jordan Rush is set to serve as the flick's executive producer and 20th Century Fox as its distributor through the joint venture Fox-Walden.
