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.
