Emma Roberts: 'The Winning Season' Isn't a Typical Basketball Movie

Emma Roberts clutches her iPad and hardcover book to her chest as she leaves a private studio after a meeting in North Hollywood on Monday afternoon (August 30).

The 19-year-old actress caught up with ComingSoon.net recently to chat about her newest movie coming to theaters — The Winning Season. Emma shared about what appealed to her about the flick, “I thought the script was really cool, and it was a movie that had basketball in it, but it’s not like a basketball movie. It’s about so much more than that. I met Jim [James Strouse] and I really liked him, I thought he was a cool guy, and Sam [Rockwell] was attached to do it, and I’ve known Sam for a very, very long time, and I definitely wanted to work with him. It just seemed like it would be a really great project.

Emma continued, noting the girls’ varying basketball skills, “It was funny because there were five of us and we were all just completely opposite on the spectrum when it comes to skill levels. Some of us were really good, and some of us had never picked up a ball before, and then there was some in-between, so it was funny when we were practicing getting together as a team and just figuring out skill level and trying to improve.”
