Matthew A. Cherry will direct his first long feature film partly based on his life experiences.
The synopsis reads:
"'The Last Fall' is a coming of age sports drama that shows the difficulties that many professional football players face when they are forced into early retirement and try to transition into their life beyond sports."
Lance Gross (House of Payne, Our Family Wedding) will play the ex-professional football player. Nicole will play his love interest.
The film will be independently produced by Cherry, Transparent Filmworks, Outer Stratosphere and Nikki Love. Lance Gross will serve as Executive Producer.
Indiewire's Shadow and Act blog, a big Nicole Beharie supporter and one of my very favorite sites, has been documenting Matthew Cherry's filmmaking experience in the following Diary Series episodes below. Lucky for us, we will be following the film's progress week by week! :-)
