“It’s a great American story that needs to be told”
-Billy Bob Thornton, Executive Producer
We are fortunate to have famed writer Angelo Pizzo on board to pen the story of Shoeless Joe. Known as the “Go-to guy” for sports movies, Angelo has written such fan favorite classics such as “Rudy”, “Hoosiers” and “My All-American”. He has a gift for bringing the true story of real characters to a center of inspirational understanding. In our humble opinion, there is no one better suited to tell Joe’s story.
