Everybody loves an underdog.

NBA star Steph Curry will be the subject of a new documentary, from A24 and producer Ryan Coogler.

As the story goes, Steph, the son of Charlotte Hornets great Dell Curry, rose to prominence during his sophomore season at Davidson.

From Variety:

The film will chronicle Curry’s historic rise to prominence during March Madness when he played for the Davidson Wildcats. The all-star athlete, considered one of the greatest shooters in NBA history, currently plays for the Golden State Warriors and has won three national championships with the team. In college, Curry set the single-season NCAA record for three-pointers made and was drafted for the NBA in 2009.

The Curry film is titled Underrated, after Steph Curry’s Underrated Tour, in which Curry provides training regimens specifically for high school athletes who have been given a three-star prospect rating and are being overlooked by most colleges or scouts, just as he was when he was a senior in high school in North Carolina.
