“Giving back to the community through football has taught us so many invaluable life lessons that we have been able to share with children in similar situations to mine when I was growing up. I hope this film will shed light on the reality that children and adults face in the outdoors and in the complex world of football.”
“Snoop’s long-standing commitment to his community through his youth soccer league is immensely inspiring to all of us at MGM,” Chris Brearton, the company’s chief operating officer, MGM, said in a statement. “We are excited to partner with this incredible creative team to bring this great comedy to cinema audiences and to reinforce MGM’s commitment to the theatrical exhibit when it hits theaters in October.”
Schwartz-Morini said: “We’ve brought together the perfect team, from MGM to the creatives led by Kenya, to make this film a reality. I’m excited to build on my 10 years with the National Football League and broader work in the sports and entertainment industry to help Snoop bring this movie idea to life.”
The film is tentatively scheduled to hit theaters on October 20, 2023.
