Production has begun in South Carolina on Disney+ original film Safety, set in the world of American footall.

From Walt Disney Pictures and directed by Reginald Hudlin (Django Unchained), Safety is a drama inspired by the true story of former US footballer Ray McElrathbey, who played as a safety for the Clemson Tigers.

The film was written by Randy McKinnon and Nick Santora and produced by Mark Ciardi. It will stream exclusively on Disney+.

“This is a powerful script that touches everyone who reads it and now we are assembling a cast of wonderful young actors who will bring Ray McElrathbey’s amazing true story to life on the screen,” said Hudlin.

Safety will be filmed on locations in Clemson, South Carolina and Atlanta, Georgia before wrapping production in mid-November.

The film stars Jay Reeves (All American) as McElrathbey, Thaddeus J Mixson (The Grind) as McElrathbey’s 11-year-old brother Fahmarr and Corinne Foxx (47 Meters Down: Uncaged).
