It's not every day that a small, relatively new production company hires the likes of Laurence Fishburne and Milo Gibson for a new drama. But that's what has happened to Winter State, which has the two now starring in Brother's Keeper.

Todd Randall's in the director's chair for the film, which is in production now, and adapts Al Pickett and Chad Mitchell's book about the true story of West Texas' 2009 Abilene High School football team, who rallied against the odds and won their state championship. Definitely some Friday Night Lights echoes, then.

Randall will be shooting the movie until November, including filming scenes at Abilene's Shotwell Stadium.

The film has yet to lock in a distributor, but according to Deadline, several are said to be interested, with the producers aiming to have it in cinemas next year.

Fishburne has a few films on the way, including Richard Linklater's Where'd You Go, Bernadette and the third John Wick movie, due out on 17 May next year. Gibson, meanwhile, will be seen in action pic All The Devil's Men.
