Now, he is taking a turn in the director’s seat with his feature-length directorial debut via the upcoming family sports comedy film ‘Little Angels.’ Cain also wrote and will be starring in the movie which has begun production in Los Angeles.

Deadline reports that the story “revolves around Jake Rogers (Cain), a Division I college football coach at the top of his game who uses a female placekicker as a publicity stunt. When the player misses a field goal, the coach makes an offhand comment in the media about female athletes and is immediately suspended by the university. In an effort to get his job back, Rogers must coach a 12-year-old girls soccer team for the remainder of the season.”
The movie also stars Helena Mattsson (‘Something About Her’), Carla Jimenez (‘Spies in Disguise’), Torrance Coombs (‘Reign,’ ‘The Last Heist’), Juliet Donenfeld (‘Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts’), Alex Jayne Go (‘Searching’) Ryan O’Quinn (‘A Champion Heart’), as well as Barry Brewer (‘The Power Couple ‘).
Cain shared an update on the film’s progress on Twitter with a photo of his character and the caption, “Coach Jake has a lot on his mind…”
