Producers will kick off filming for the movie "The Final Season" this week. After going though hundreds of baseball players, they finally have the team to make this sports shoot happen very intricately.
It's not quite Norway baseball, but it is in the ballpark. Chris Brown says, "When this came up, it was the perfect opportunity to show the skill that I had."
Brown is just one of a handful of all-stars turned movie stars. When these guys signed on, they were already baseball players, so next they had to learn how to act and then re-enact. That's where Reelsports Solutions comes in.
The company's CEO, Rob Miller, said, "That's really our job to make this look authentic and tell the story through the action."
This company choreographed sports movies like The Rookie and Mr. 3000. Every hit, every catch, it's all pre-planned.
And for the true story of Iowa's winningest high school baseball team, the company really needed to replicate this routine.
Miller says, "They're the real coaches. This was their system. So they're helping us re-enact it a little bit so that's cool."
Kent Stock and Jim Van Scoyoc help the company make movie and memory magic.
Stocks says, "Just fine tuning their skills and showing them this is what we did when we were at Norway."
Producers will shoot the first baseball game sequence this weekend. Mike Boddicker, a one-time Norway player who pitched for more than a dozen years in the major leagues, is also helping ReelSports with the on-field staging.
