Curry expanding his off-court portfolio.
Back in April, Golden State Warriors All-Star guard Stephen Curry signed a deal with Sony Pictures Entertainment, that will allow the two-time NBA MVP to produce television, film and possibly some gaming projects.
According to the Associated Press, Curry and the company he has co-founded, Unanimous Media, plan to develop several projects focusing on family, faith and sports themes. Variety recently caught up with Curry and Unanimous Media co-founder Jeron Smith regarding some of these upcoming projects, which includes a "Church Hoppers" comedy.
"It should come as no surprise that Curry’s camp is developing film concepts themed to key Christian holidays like Easter and Christmas. Other concepts are more loosely tied to faith-based themes, according to Smith: an animated biblical story now under the watchful eye of Sony Pictures Animation and “Church Hoppers,” a “Wedding Crashers”-esque comedy about a jilted groom who takes his pals along with him as he navigates the church scene in search of a new bride."
Variety also reports that The Unanimous team has met with execs from divisions all over Sony to advance ideas. On the TV side, every department — drama, comedy, unscripted, TV movies and miniseries — is working with Curry, according to Variety.
