With the World Cup just around the corner, it seems the right time to announce that Elisabeth Shue’s football drama Gracie has found funding. Picturehouse will grab US rights to the film, which starts shooting this summer.

Davis Guggenheim will direct Shue, teen actress Carly Schroeder (Mean Creek) and brother Andrew Shue in a story inspired by her real-life family history. The film focuses on a 16-year-old girl, who after her football star brother dies playing the game, dedicates her life to winning the right for girls everywhere to play the game competitively.

Guggenheim, who is currently promoting his documentary An Inconvenient Truth at Cannes, is also known for being Elisabeth’s Shue’s husband. Expect the rest of the family to provide the catering.
