Jeremy Lin may be down, but he’s definitely not out.
Though the American basketball star with Taiwanese roots is currently sitting out the rest of the NBA season with a knee injury, Linsanity is still very much alive thanks to a documentary about Lin that’s currently in the works.
The LA Times reports that the still-unnamed documentary will focus on Lin’s humble upbringing and meteoric rise to fame. It is being directed by filmmaker Evan Jackson Leong, a friend of Lin’s, and produced by the same company that filmed 2009’s Oscar-bait film “An Education.”
Leong helped Lin produce a series of Youtube videos on his everyday life as a struggling bench player for the Golden State Warriors last season. The series went viral when Linsanity reached its frenzied peak back in February.
No word yet on whether or not the film’s title will contain an, ahem, imaginative pun.
