Ralph Smyth Entertainment and producers Russell Wayne Groves, Andrew Lee, David Ward, Red Sanders, and Tucker Moore have announced the start of production for Intramural, a comedy about a fifth-year college senior who assembles a team of misfits for one last epic run in intramural football before moving on to marriage, graduation and the real world.
Andrew Disney (Searching for Sonny) will direct a script written by Bradley Jackson and a cast that includes Jake Lacy (“The Office”), Nikki Reed (‘The Twilight Saga’), Kate McKinnon (“Saturday Night Live”), Jay Pharoah (“Saturday Night Live”), Nick Kocher (Much Ado About Nothing), Brian McElhaney (Much Ado About Nothing), D.C. Pierson (Mystery Team), Michael Hogan (“Battlestar Galactica”), Sam Eidson (Zero Charisma), Beck Bennett (AT&T’s “It’s Not Complicated” ad campaign), and Nick Rutherford (Good Neighborsketch comedy group). The film will shoot in Austin, TX.
“With ‘Intramural,’ we’re setting out to make an epic sports movie for the guys who don’t deserve one,” says Andrew Disney. “We’ve got a hilarious script, a terrific ensemble cast, and one hell of a production team. I can’t wait to start shooting in Austin.”
Intramural is set in the highly popular world of college intramural sports, a subculture that has yet to be explored in film, providing a unique spin to the sports comedy genre. Caleb Fuller is a fifth year college senior with marriage and law school ahead of him. As his daunting future looms ominously on the horizon, Caleb longs to do something that doesn’t matter before he graduates, something just for fun. When his impulsive roommate Hank suggests they form a football team, Caleb sets off to reassemble his former squad, The Panthers, for one last shot at intramural glory.
