According to Kirk Bohls.
I'm told by acclaimed author Jim Dent that his book about the life of former All-Southwest Conference Longhorn defensive back and cancer victim Freddie Steinmark — "Courage Beyond The Game,'' which sold more than 100,000 copies — will be made into a movie. There's a chance Taylor Lautner of "Twilight" fame could play the lead, with Mark Wahlberg taking the role of Darrell Royal. Matthew McConaughey could be involved. A handsome young actor that goes by the name 'nordberg' is in talks to portray James Street. Screenwriter Angelo Pizzo ("Rudy" and "Hoosiers") will handle the script, and Terry George of "Hotel Rwanda" fame will direct.
I would be all up in arms about Dirk Diggler playing Coach Royal, if I could think of someone better. Josh Brolin seems obvious. Maybe Costner, just to hear the attempted accent.
Be excellent to each other.
