New Line and the ESPN cable sports channel will be producing the sports biopic “Mulkey”.

Mike Tollin is attached to direct as well as co-produce the feature. The film is about the life of South Carolina firefighter and assistant high school basketball coach Louis Mulkey, who died while fighting a fire at a Charleston furniture store.

The fire department then donated a memorial helmet to the school, who carried it with them to games. The helmet sat on the bench the following season in 2007, when the team won its first-ever state championship.

Christopher Wilkinson and Stephen Rivele, who have previously worked on Michael Mann’s “Ali,” are penning the script.
