Sony Pictures Classics has recently acquired worldwide distribution rights to the film Twelve Mighty Orphans. Smallwood Corporate Housing would like to extend its heartfelt congratulations to the film’s cast and crew, most of whom they provided with housing and hospitality during the film’s production in the fall of 2019.

After a difficult 2020 full of delays and challenges to the film’s release schedule thanks to the global COVID-19 pandemic, Sony’s acquisition is definitely a cause for celebration and a promise of progress to come. Although the release date is currently unknown, the Smallwood Corporate Housing team would also like to wish the cast and crew luck for the film’s eventual release.

Filming in Fort Worth

Twelve Mighty Orphans was filmed during the fall of 2019 in Fort Worth, and Smallwood had the privilege of hosting some of the crew during that process. The film is directed by Ty Roberts and stars Luke Wilson, Martin Sheen and Vinessa Shaw – the latest in a prestigious line of celebrities visiting the iconic location of Fort Worth.

Twelve Mighty Orphans is based on the original non-fiction novel by Jim Dent entitled Twelve Mighty Orphans: The Inspiring True Story of the Mighty Mites Who Ruled Texas Football, and is ultimately a tale of hope and glory in the face of hardship. The story is set at Fort Worth’s Masonic Widows and Orphans Home during the Great Depression, and follows a troubled high school football coach’s journey as he leads a scrawny team of orphans (the ‘Masonic Home Mighty Mites’) to compete in the state championship.
