Hunt will play former West High head volleyball coach Kathy Bresnahan.

In Oct. 2015, the Gazette reported plans for the production which would be based on a forthcoming novel from Bresnahan:

[Bresnahan] has signed with LD Entertainment to start the production of a movie based on her own novel, West on Nine, which tells the story of the volleyball team’s journey. The book will not be released until the movie is finished in late 2016

According to the film’s in-development IMDB page, the summary is as follows:

After the tragic death of star volleyball player Caroline “Line” Found, a team of dispirited high school girls must band together under the guidance of their tough-love coach in hopes of winning the state championship.
