Elliot Page has signed on to executive produce a queer cheerleading drama starring “Reservation Dogs” actor Devery Jacobs.
“Backspot” is the debut movie for Page’s Page Boy Productions collaborating with Jacobs’ Night is Y banner.
Jacobs launched the manufacturing firm in Toronto alongside D.W. Waterson, who’s the creator behind the “That’s My DJ” digital collection.
Waterson and Jacobs can even produce “Backspot” with Prospero Pictures.
The movie’s identify is a reference to the cheerleading place of backspotter, who helps the flyer throughout cheerleading stunts.
“Backspot” particulars two cheerleaders’ journey navigating their athletic careers, romantic relationships and their coach’s view on queer girls.
