Caple, who directed Creed II for Warners, will also produce the upcoming film alongside Legendary’s Mary Parent and Alex Garcia, and Gotham Group’s Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Eric Robinson.
Juel Taylor and Tony Rettenmaier, who wrote the script and the short story on which By All is based, will produce as well. Jennifer Levine is attached to executive produce the film.
