Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is working with NBC on a television adaptation of the 2000 film "Finding Forrester," which starred the late Sean Connery.

Curry will executive produce the reboot as part of a film and television deal that his company, Unanimous Media, inked with Sony Pictures Entertainment in 2018, according to Nellie Andreeva of Deadline.

"Finding Forrester" tells the story of Jamal Wallace (Rob Brown), a Black teenager who receives a scholarship to a prestigious private high school and befriends a reclusive writer named William Forrester (Connery). The TV series, also titled "Finding Forrester," will instead focus on the bond between two gifted Black writers.

Other projects in the works from Curry's Unanimous Media include an animated reboot of Norman Lear's 1970s comedy "Good Times" for Netflix and a women's basketball-inspired film called "One and Done."
