Movie planned about life of Don Meyer, former Lipscomb University basketball coach
Coming soon to a theater near you: a movie about the life of former Lipscomb University basketball coach Don Meyer.
The Aberdeen News in South Dakota reports:
Hollywood silently came to Aberdeen this week.
Moonglow Films producers were scouting locations for a movie about former Northern State basketball coach Don Meyer. After lining up the movie’s talent and finances, they hope to start production this year and release the independent film into theaters next year.
“The story really attracted me a lot, and it became a no-brainer for me right away,” said Brad Wilson, a Hollywood veteran of 32 movies who is executive vice president of Moonglow. “And then you meet Coach Meyer, and you are just mesmerized by the guy. You come away a believer.”
“My Many Sons” is the working title. Part of the movie will be shot in Aberdeen and part of it in Nashville, Tenn.
FeedbackCongrats to Coach Meyer!
Now if Lipscomb would only reconcile with all of the other alumni they have alienated! I was there from 80-84 and loved it. Not the same place. However, it has made me realize that the institutions of men cannot replace God’s plan. Organizations spawned by the Restoration Movement are just like other organizations spawned by social movements. Organizations may depart from the very principles that called them into being.Barry PoynerAugust, 8 2012
