Matthew Delladova’s Rise To Fame Inspired A Film That’s In The Works

The life of Australian basketballer Matthew Dellavedova, who rose from rural Victoria to play in Wednesday’s NBA finals, is being turned into a Hollywood production.

The 24-year-old signed with NBA team the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2013 after moving to the US to play college basketball in 2009.

The fictional story, based on Dellavedova’s rise, will follow the tale of three young Australian basketballers who are drafted to play basketball for a US college.

Role Models executive producer Jason Shuman has signed on to the project, which is being called Final Four, while The Bodhi Tree‘s Robert ‘Bobby’ Galinsky will act as screenwriter and executive producer.

Galinsky said the work would either be made into a feature film or a Friday Night Lights-style series.
