Per multiple sources, Disney+ has a new feature film in development at the studio. The film is titled ‘Safety’, will be written by Randy McKinnon, produced by Mark Ciardi and production will begin in August. The film will focus on a scholarship football player who takes custody of his eleven year old brother when their mother checks into rehab. It seems that the film will definitely focus on the family aspect that many of Disney’s shows and films for Disney+ will have however, the fact of rehab also suggests that Disney is not afraid to tackle some more mature stories for families.

Jay Reeves, who co-starred on the first season of the CW football drama All American, will star as Ray, with Thaddeus J. Mixson (The Grind) and Corinne Foxx (47 Meters Down: Uncaged) also starring. Luke Tennie (Deadly Class) has also been cast in a supporting role. Randy McKinnon and Nick Santora penned the screenplay which is being produced by Mark Ciardi.

The pic, which will shoot on location in South Carolina as well as Atlanta, centers on Ray, a young man facing a series of challenging circumstances, whose faith and persistence help him to triumph over repeated adversities and play football on scholarship at Clemson University, all while struggling to raise and care for his 11-year-old brother Fahmarr (Mixson).

I actually just did a movie for Disney+ (called Safety) that’s a true story about a freshman at Clemson College in 2006, who’s on the football team. He ended up raising his 11-year-old brother, and snuck him into the dorm rooms. It’s one of those really beautiful, heartwarming true stories. I actually had a lot of fun on that ‘cause I did not have to go into a dark place. I’m playing the coach, and my job was to keep it light and keep everybody together. I really had fun on that. I worked with a great group of young actors, who were really lovely guys. This guy, Jay Reeves, stars in it. It’s really fun to watch the next generation. I’m entering a new phase of my life, and I’m excited for that. I’m not the young guy anymore. I’m doing something different now.
