Filmmaker Reginald Hudlin will direct an untitled sports drama for Disney's upcoming streaming service, Disney+. Hudlin, best known for producing Oscar-nominated feature "Django Unchained", will helm the project from a script by Randy McKinnon, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

It is based on the true story of Ray Ray McElrathbey, who as a freshman football player for Clemson University, started secretly raising his 11-year-old brother on campus due to his mother's struggles with addiction. The story made national news in 2006. The project will be produced by Mark Ciardi, who has previously backed sports dramas such as "The Rookie" and "Million Dollar Arm".
