Martin Sensmeier (Red Harvest in The Magnificent Seven (2016)) will star as world renowned athlete Jim Thorpe in Bright Path: The Jim Thorpe Story. The film will be produced by Angelina Jolie, and is being created with the support and guidance of Thorpe's descendants and tribe.

Thorpe "won two Olympic gold medals representing the United States while his citizenship went unrecognized during a period of cultural genocide for Native Americans. He went on to play Major League Baseball, professional football, and eventually founded the organization that became the NFL."
