The story of Giannis Antetokounmpo‘s rise to NBA stardom will make its way to the silver screen, courtesy of a new biopic from Walt Disney Studios. The film will follow the true story of the Antetokounmpo family, including Giannis’s brother Kostas, from immigrants living in Greece with undocumented status to finding runaway success in basketball.

On Wednesday, the studio announced that the live action film is currently in development for its streaming platform Disney+, and Antetokounmpo took to Twitter to confirm his involvement in the film. He also shared information about two open casting calls: one for Antetokounmpo from age 13 to 15, and the other from 15-18 years old. No acting experience is required for either role.
