The film is set in McFarland, CA and centers on a new high school coach (Costner) who arrives in town and attempts to break the old habits of the student body by forming an all-star track team. Pratts will play a student named Thomas who becomes a member of the team, but often deals with anger issues that land him in trouble.
Gordon Gray and Mark Ciardi are producing with Niki Caro at the helm.
Pratts stars on the FX drama “The Bridge” and appeared in the 2011 film “Go For It!” He is repped by Prestige Talent Agency.
