Moe Norman, the famous golf icon, filled his life with ups and downs. He had troubled family bonds, facing isolation, his victory over losses, lifelong friendships, and being removed from an important golf tour that made him eventually settle for smaller competitions. But he did leave his mark by winning them and setting records in the journey.
The life of this forgotten legend wasn’t a fancy one but only the one that provided him food, and many times he slept in his car or the ground he played on. So, let’s find out if the movie on this great star will actually be made or is it just the rumor circulating at the time.
Is Moe Norman Really Happening, or is it a Rumour?
Yes, the biopic of legendary golf master Moe Norman is finally happening with production being collaboratively looked upon by actress turned entrepreneur Janet Gretzky (Palo Alto, Alpha Dog) and her husband Wayne Gretzk, first as a famous ice hockey player and later as the coach in National Hockey League and in 1999 got admitted to the Hockey Hall of Fame.
The executive production has been signed by Seinfeld director David Steinberg who has shown his exceptional talent of direction in many great films like Curb Your Enthusiasm, Designing Women, Mad About You and many more and his wife Robyn Todd, who is a producer, an author, and casting director for both film and television and has executively produced shows like Inside Comedy, Quality Balls: The David Steinberg Story, Sit Down Comedy with David Steinberg and others.
What will the Movie Moe Norman be About?
The biopic will essentially dictate the tale of a golf legend from Canada, Moe Norman. The famous personality in 1995 was admitted into the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame and, in 2004, shortly post his demise, was admitted into Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame.
The icon was often regarded as the best of best by his competitors and fans. Still, his introverted and mismatching personality with the sports often led him to stand against society and even the sports authority. Thus, the film of the same name will tell the story of this star, and it will be delightful to watch how his life journey was.
Who will All be Involved in Making of Moe Norman?
As mentioned above, the executive producer is being handled by David Steinberg and Robyn Todd, while co-producers for the film are Janet Gretzky and Wayne Gretzky. The director for the film is yet to be finalized, while the screenplay has been credited to Mark Bergen, Todd Korgan and Josh Schorr.
Joshua Michael Stern is looking after the revisions for this US-Canadian production. David Carver Films has helmed the position of producer for this biopic.
When will the Film Begin Shooting?
The US- Canadian production giant has decided to kick start filming the biopic in 2022 early summer. The cast for the film will be chosen by popular casting director Valorie Massalas who has shown her talent in movies like Indiana Jones, Back To The Future and The Last Crusade and has worked as both casting director as well as executive producer for The Wedding Ringer, Gods and Monsters and many more. Carver has mentioned that the film will not be a tale of golf but actually a life story.
