U.S. Soccer Star Hope Solo Subject Of Movie Biopic From ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ & ‘Chasing Coral’ Outfit Argent Pictures

Exclusive: U.S. soccer star Hope Solo is to be the subject of a movie biopic produced by Hacksaw Ridge backers Argent Pictures.

The currently untitled narrative feature about the World Cup winner and Olympic champion will be written and directed by Christine Crokos (Pimp) after Argent optioned the goalkeeper’s life story rights.

Jill Ahrens (American Made), Ryan Ahrens (Chasing Coral) and Ben Renzo (The Birth Of A Nation) will produce for Malibu-based Argent. Executive producers are Argent partners and fellow sports stars Drew Brees, Tony Parker, Michael Finley, and Derrick Brooks. That’s a combined haul on the project of a World Cup, Olympic gold medal, two Super Bowls and five NBA Championships.

From humble beginnings, Solo was heavily recruited by several colleges around the country. She excelled at the University of Washington, breaking numerous records on her way to becoming one of the best women’s goalkeepers in Pac-10 history.
