Untitled Ascension Eagles Project: Big Talk Productions to develop

Fri June 4, 2010 Return to Film News

  • Big Talk Productions have picked up the rights of Britain's most successful cheerleading squad, the Ascension Eagles.

  • Based on true facts, the story centers on a young Texan woman who moved to one of East London's poorest neighbourhoods as the young wife of a British vicar. Dismayed at the lack of opportunity, Shara Brice set about transforming an initially reluctant group of local kids into a cheerleading squad who now rank 6th in the world, the most successful co-ed squad outside of the States.

  • Daisy Donovan is writing the script.
