Also starring in the George Ratliff-directed movie will be Sam Rockwell and Kate Denings.

Apart from directing the pic, Rarliff also penned the script for it, reports Variety.

Hartnett will play a gifted running back who is fumbling his attempts to acclimate to stardom. Dennings plays a student who captivates the jock.

Rockwell plays the school’s excitable publicist. Yet to be cast is a teacher of international terrorism and mass destruction who sees the running back as the perfect soldier/student.

“`End Zone’ is such a wonderfully subversive novel that I always saw a movie in it,” Ratliff said.

On board as producers are Johnathan Dorfman and Temple Fennell of ATO Pictures. 12th Floor Film Fund is financing the pic.

Hartnett was most recently seen in the horror pic ‘30 Days of Night’, based on the comic book miniseries of the same name. The film is directed by David Slade. (ANI)
