Making The Pistol Pete Movie – Behind the Birth of a Legend
“Making The Pistol: Behind the Birth of a Legend” is a behind the scenes look at the making of the Pistol Pete movie “The Pistol: The Birth of a Legend.”
Friend and co-author of Pete’s autobiography Pistol Pete: Heir to a Dream, Darrell Campbell narrates this documentary style video on how “The Pistol” was made.
Darrell discusses how Pete Maravich was the one who chose Adam Guier to play the role of a young Pete Maravich. Pete was planning on teaching Guier his own moves to better prepare him for the role, but sadly Pete died before he had the chance to teach Adam the skills necessary to play the role.
The crew behind the movie then turned to Pistol Pete’s Homework Basketball training series in order to train Adam for the role in The Pistol. Adam Guier dedicated himself to learning the drills in the Homework Basketball videos and became skilled enough as a basketball player to assume the role of a young Pistol Pete Maravich for the making of “The Pistol: The Birth of a Legend.”
