Variety ran a September 11 story on the upcoming movie to be filmed at Gettysburg College, 1,000 to 1: The Cory Weissman Story. The movie will tell the story of Gettysburg College student Cory Weissman.
David Henrie ("Wizards of Waverly Place") will star in the indie feature film "1000 to 1: The Cory Weissman Story."
He will portray the real-life role of Weissman, a gifted athlete who starred for his high school's basketball team before being felled by a stroke. His new dream is to simply appear in one more game and hold the ball in his hands one more time, even if it's just for a few seconds.
Bob Burris and Bruce Gordon will produce the film, and Michael Levin will direct. "The Cory Weissman Story" is scheduled to begin production in Pennsylvania in October.
