Imagine Documentaries has partnered with three-time NBA champion Dwyane Wade on a documentary following his NBA career and life of the court as Wade is on the final season of his NBA career.
The documentary will be directed by Wade’s long-time cinematographer Bob Metelus. The doc will use home movies, video diaries and other unseen footage of the NBA champion, especially his role as a Father, and Husband during his final season.
Justin Wilkes, who is producing the documentary with Ron Howard, Wade, and Metelus released a co-statement with them:
“The opportunity to tell a high-stakes personal story that spans a decade using purely verite material is a documentarian’s dream,” Wilkes said.
“The fact that the story belongs to one of the greatest athletes of all time is cinematic kismet. We’re honored to be working with Dwyane and Bob on creating a film that will entertain and inspire.” Wade said.
“I’m looking forward to sharing this very personal documentary that peels back the layers of my emotional sixteen season journey with all of its twists and turns, and peaks and valleys, It has been a roller coaster ride and the never-before-seen footage will show my fans how I’ve made my own way throughout this incredible adventure.”
There is no current release date for the doc.
