About ’12 Mighty Orphans’:

Actor and Dallas native Luke Wilson will star in the film as Coach Rusty Russell, a World War I veteran with a troubled past who accepts a job as head football coach at a Texas orphanage and high school in southeast Fort Worth. The film will center around the true story of the orphanage overlooking Fort Worth, where Coach Russell molds youngsters into unlikely athletes.
“For me, there’s nothing more important than authenticity in making a movie. Shooting in Fort Worth provides a foundation for us to build our film which allows our team to source everything as it was — from references, to historians, to the real locations — all of this is invaluable to a period movie,” said Ty Roberts, director of “12 Mighty Orphans,” in a news release.
