Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are producing a dramatic feature adaptation of Racing Dreams, a documentary by Marshall Curry which won Best Documentary at last year’s Tribeca Film Festival.
Racing Dreams is the story of three young Go-Kart racers who compete in the World Karting Association’s National Pavement Series. The racers have dreams of becoming NASCAR racers when they grow up.
Kurtzman and Orci won’t be writing the adaptation themselves, but will be overseeing Racing Dreams. Dwayne Johnson and his wife Dany Garcia, who produced the documentary, will be executive producers. A writer will be hired this week.
