Dallas Sting, a soccer movie directed by Kari Skogland, will star Matthew McConaughey

Matthew McConaughey has signed for the lead role

Hollywood icon Matthew McConaughey has signed on to play the lead role in Kari Skogland’s upcoming soccer movie Dallas Sting.

A group of Dallas high school girls will play themselves in the fictionalised account of how they travelled to China in 1984 as the ultimate underdogs and defeated some of the top women’s teams from China, Australia, and Italy. Work on the project will start this fall in New Orleans.

McConaughey will play Bill Kinder

Matthew McConaughey will play Bill Kinder in the drama written by Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch. Kinder was the coach who guided the mismatched team of Texas teenagers toward a Rocky-like fate. The Dallas Sting debuted long before the American women’s national team became the undisputed champions of the Olympic and World Cup.

According to Deadline, US President Reagan made a concerted attempt to improve ties with China in 1984. In response, China extended an invitation to the US to send a team to their inaugural women’s soccer world championship.

There was only one issue: the US Women’s Soccer Team did not exist. Officials discovered a 19-and-under league of Dallas high school females known as The Sting after the most recent Paul Newman-Robert Redford blockbuster.

The story of how this dedicated squad of young women got to China was extraordinary, led by Kinder, who had no prior experience coaching soccer before he assembled the team. And what they accomplished against the best women’s teams in the world. It included teams made up of mature women who had been playing together for years, was nothing short of a miracle.
