Disney Celebrates Male Cheerleaders
Tue, 29 Jul 2008 10:24:20
Disney has picked up the script for The Matadors, a dance comedy that takes its inspiration from a professional male cheerleading troupe that has the distinct honor of performing before all Chicago Bulls home basketball games. The film's plot will revolve around two rabid basketball fans who form their own male cheerleading group to show support of their favorite team. The title is tentative for now and may change as the film's plot and cast fall into place.
Choreographer and dancer Anne Fletcher, also a former Laker Girl, will direct the film. The cast hasn't been assembled yet, but the Mouse House and producers of the picture hope to partner with the NBA and use league teams and logos in the actual film.
