The Hill starring Dennis Quaid is now casting and hiring actors in Atlanta, Georgia. 

The upcoming family drama is written by Angelo Pizzo (RudyHoosiers) and the late Scott Marshall Smith (The ScoreMen of Honor), who passed away in December.

The movie centers around the story of Rickey Hill, a kid who overcame his physical disability to play professional baseball. Given all the issues Rickey faced with his relationship with his father, his story is more than just about sports. It’s a story about family, and what a man can do when they choose to follow their dreams.

Dennis Quaid will portray Rickey’s father, Pastor hill, a protective man who does not want his son to pursue his dream, fearing he will get made fun of for his disability. However, Hill’s tough appearance is broken as Rickey grows up and proves his natural ability. 

Breaking Point director, Jeff Celentano will direct the movie. “I’m setting out to make an iconic film in the classic sense, a beautiful sweeping and powerful inspirational story. One that will stand the test of time like BlindsideRudy, Field of Dreams and The Natural. Dennis was the first and only person I thought of for the lead role upon reading the script,” said Celentano. “There’s no doubt in my mind that he has the ability to play a loving, caring father while at the same time a staunch, powerful man – all the qualities needed to bring Pastor Hill’s character to life.”

“Since the 1970s in particular, the sports film has gained increasing recognition as one of the most important and popular genres in contemporary cinema,” added Quaid. “I couldn’t be more excited about this project. This film will no doubt further validate the power of American social mobility and show that in America you can choose to be what you want.”
