The inspirational story of a Gettysburg College basketball player is expected to be made into a movie.
Cory Weissman suffered a stroke during his first year on campus, only to return to the court for one moment during his senior year. That tale is now coming to the silver screen. Shooting for the movie "1,000 to 1: The Cory Weissman Story" will begin on campus in October.
David Henrie, from the "Wizards of Waverly Place," will play the lead in the movie. Multiple Emmy nominee Beau Bridges will star as Gettysburg College basketball coach George Petrie, and Jean Louisa Kelly will play Weissman's mother, Tina, a physical therapist who became her son's partner in a long recovery.
Six-time Grammy Award winner Arturo Sandoval will compose and record the score for the film.
