LIVE LIKE LINE: William Hurt To Star Alongside Helen Hunt

William Hurt

William Hurt set to appear opposite Helen Hunt in Live Like Line. The two Academy Award-winning stars will headline the planned sports movie about a girls volleyball team from director Sean McNamara.

McNamara’s involvement will mark the second time he has directed Hurt in a project. The two men recently collaborated in The King’s Daughter, a fantasy film which just finished shooting and paired the Captain America: Civil War star with Pierce Brosnan:

The film chronicles Iowa City’s West High School girls volleyball team and its improbable run to the state championship under the guidance of their tough-love coach Kathy Bresnahan (Hunt). After the death of their star player Caroline “Line” Found (Danika Yarosh), Kelly (Erin Moriarty) must move past the loss of her best friend and fill Caroline’s role as team captain and playmaker.

Hurt will play Caroline’s father who, after his daughter’s death and the death of his wife 10 days later, finds himself reeling. It is because of his strong faith and support from the community that he gets back on his feet and begins helping his daughter’s best friend and the rest of her teammates to once again find inspiration.

LD Entertainment’s Mickey Liddell is fully financing and Liddell is producing with Pete Shilaimon and Scott Holroyd. Apex Entertainment’s Mark Ciardi and Campbell McInnes are also producing. LD Entertainment’s Jennifer Monroe is executive producing. Charles Rapp is line producing.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
