The search is underway to find the star of Disney’s upcoming movie about the National Basketball Association’s MVP, Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Production is slated to begin later this year and will document the story of the two brothers— from the streets of Athens as undocumented children of Nigerian immigrants to their rise as NBA stars in the United States.
No details have been released on the production of the film or whether any of the scenes will be shot in Greece.
The film will reportedly be released on Disney’s streaming service, Disney+.
