Haley Joel Osment Plans a "Giant" Comeback
"Set in an Indiana town that lives for basketball, the story follows a teenager (Osment) who idolizes one of the town's basketball stars. The teen and his best pal are befriended by the player, who ends up being anything but the hero they thought he was."
The independently financed coming-of-age story goes into production later this year in North Carolina.
Mr. Osment's last movie was 2003's "Secondhand Lions."
