Variety, Chuck Taylor and The All Stars
By Dave Mcnary @Variety
Writer Alec Sokolow and producers Marc Gold, Ricky Brava, Sam Sokolow, Hassan Wharton-Ali, Daryl Spivey and Rudy Vegliante are moving forward with independent comedy feature film “The All Stars.”
The project will explore the legend and the legacy of Chuck Taylor, who sold and designed basketball sneakers starting in 1929. “The All Stars” will follow a mid-20’s ex-con and a mid-70’s cop as they race against time and obsessive sneakerhead collectors to obtain the very first pair of 1929 Chuck Taylor Converse All-Stars.
Sokolow was an Oscar nominee for the script for “Toy Story.” “The All Stars” is tentatively set to film in New Jersey in 2019.
“We already have significant interest from several major sports and entertainment personalities and their companies that want to be a part of this iconic project,” Gold said.
