It is finally here; a Jeremy Lin documentary!
The Los Angeles Times reports that the New York Knicks guard will be the subject of a documentary that is being shopped by CAA. The film is expected to cover Lin’s athletic career, his upbringing in California and his life at Harvard.
According to the Times:
The Lin doc is being directed by Evan Jackson Leong, Lin’s friend and a filmmaker in his own right. A former assistant to “Fast and Furious” franchise director Justin Lin (no relation), Leong previously directed a documentary about Christianity in Asia titled “1040″ and also has been shooting Lin for years. (A message left at Leong’s production company was not returned Wednesday afternoon.) The film will be produced by 408 Films and Endgame Entertainment, which previously produced the Oscar favorite “An Education” and the documentary “Every Little Step;” it’s currently working on a documentary series about American sports for HBO.
Linsanity has died down since it hit its apex during his unbelievable, charismatic run in February when the Knicks were struggling. His recent season ending knee surgery also proves for an unclear future with the Knicks. However, all indications are pointing to the Knicks resigning their season saving point guard.
