We Are Marshall Alums Linden, Mackie Team on Planned Films ; McG and Viola Producing CBS High School Drama
The premise sounds like that faced by a boxer in the classic, “Here Comes Mr. Jordan.” The dude mistakenly taken to Heaven too soon leads angelic Mr. Jordan to place his “soul” in the bodies of others, who one-by-one continue to be wasted or offed, just as he’s finally getting his former love to fall for his new embodiment.
Linden who penned and produced “Dear John” and “10 Years,” has been contracted to write and direct “Noggin” which is based on the John Corey Whaley novel.
In addition, Linden joins fellow “We Are Marshall” star Anthony (“Captain America Winter Soldier”) Mackie in the production of a film based on Jesse Owens , the sprinter whose four Gold medals at the 1936 Berlin Olympics bashed Adolph Hitler’s theories that German’s are the superior race. Linden and Mackie are looking for a distributor in hope that the film can make it to screens by 2016.

Mae (“Parenthood”) Whitman, Bianca (“Channing,” “The Fosters,” “Ouija”) Santos, and Robbie (“The Tomorrow People”) Arnell have been cast.
