Vivica A. Fox, Montel Williams, and Mary Wilson (of The Supremes), are all attached to co-star in an indie family sports drama titled Golden Shoes.
They’ll be joined by John Rhys-Davies, Eric Roberts, David DeLuise and Joshua Morrow in a project that’s currently in pre-production, and tells the story of a young boy whose father is missing in action at war, and whose mother is in the hospital. He consoles himself with dreams of playing in the youth soccer league, standing up in the face of bullying along the way.
The movie is expected to shoot in parts of Michigan, and is currently filling out the remainder of its cast and crew.
Lance Kawas will direct from his own screenplay, from a story by Norman Koza, who’ll also produce the film.
The project will hold an open casting call on September 12 at the Ultimate Soccer Arena (in Pontiac, Michigan) from 4 – 8pm.
