‘Sons of Soldiers’ Football Movie in the Works with Richard Donner (Exclusive)

Richard Donner, Derek Hoffman, Bobby Sabelhaus and John Zaozirny are developing drama “Sons of Soldiers,” centering on a high school football team at Fort Campbell, Ky., and the impact of the players’ parents serving in the military.

“For us, this is a project that goes beyond the traditional sports drama, to explore the sacrifices that not only soldiers make, but also their spouses and children,” Sabelhaus told Variety.

“This is about the wives and children who are on the other end of all those phone calls we see in films like ‘American Sniper,'” he added. “Though they’re not on a battlefield, they make massive sacrifices as well, going weeks without knowing where their father or mother, husband or wife are.”

The producers have obtained the life rights to Shawn Berner, who successfully coached the Fort Campbell Falcons for more than a decade. They have also hired screenwriter Robert Eisele, »
