The Weinstein Company has announced that Sean “Diddy” Combs will serve as executive producer on a remake of the Oscar-nominated documentary Undefeated.
Diddy will serve as producer on the original version of the film, which sees a limited release on February 17th. Undefeated, nominated for an Academy Award this year, is a “coming-of-age verite-style documentary centering on several young student-athletes and the volunteer coach who guides them through a rough, yet rewarding, football season in northern Memphis.”
“I am excited to partner with Harvey Weinstein on this incredible project. Undefeated is a great American story with a lot of heart and soul. It had a profound effect on me and I couldn’t get it out of my mind when I saw it. There is so much truth and so much hope in this film, and I feel passionately that everyone who sees it will be inspired,” said Diddy in a press release.
