The Sublime biopic is officially in the works.

The upcoming film will be directed by Francis Lawrence, who helmed the Hunger Games movies Catching Fire and the two-part Mockingjay, and written by Ozark scribe and producer Chris Mundy.

Surviving Sublime members Bud Gaugh and Eric Wilson will serve as executive producers along with late frontman Bradley Nowell‘s son, Jakob, and widow, Troy.

In a joint statement, Gaugh, Wilson and the Nowells say, “Wow — we can’t believe this is finally happening and we couldn’t be more honored and excited to have the great Francis Lawrence and Chris Mundy telling our story.”

“We know Bradley’s talent and spirit will be part of this incredible journey,” they add.

The release date and title for the film have yet to be announced.
