Lucas Black And Robert Duvall Reunite For Seven Days in Utopia

Posted by Perri Nemiroff On July - 31 - 2010 0 Comment

We’re due for a new golf movie, right? The last one I can remember seeing in the theater was that one with Shia Labeouf, The Greatest Game Ever Played back in 2005. Well, it looks like the next one is right around the corner because according to Variety, both Robert Duvall and Lucas Black have signed on to star in Seven Days in Utopia, which begins production in Texas on Thursday with Matthew Dean Russell behind the lens.

They’ll join Ann Woll, Brian Geraghty and Melissa Leo in the golf drama based on David L. Cook’s book Golf’s Sacred Journey: Seven Days at the Links of Utopia. Cook co-wrote the script with Rob Levine, which focuses on a young golfer with hopes of one day joining the pro tour. Unfortunately, he finally gets that chance, but blows it big time in front of a huge crowd. He opts to leave his troubles and the game behind and winds up stranded in Utopia, Texas. That’s where he meets a strange rancher who actually has some life-changing advice to dispense.

The article doesn’t say who’s who, but I’m going to take a guess and say Black will be our up and coming golfer and Duvall will play the rancher. Regardless, Utopia will be their third project together. Duvall and Black were both in the 1996 film Sling Blade as well as Get Low, which just hit theaters this weekend. While I didn’t love Get Low, there’s no denying that it’s a well made film and that the acting in it is absolutely fantastic. So between Duvall and Black as well as Woll, Geraghty and Leo, odds are, Seven Days in Utopia will be something to look forward to.
