Atchison Helming Walden’s Throwback


Walden Media has hired Doug Atchison to direct its basketball-themed film The Throwback, reports Variety.

The true story is based on the lives of Frank and Isaac Gildea, the only father-son duo to ever play basketball together on a college team. Nick Santora penned the screenplay.

Mayhem Pictures’ Mark Ciardi and Gordon Gray–the pair behind such sports pics as Invincible, The Rookie and Miracle–are producing.
