Isaiah Washington is teaming up with Forrest Whitaker in Weinstein Co.’s drama Patriots, which is based on a true story about a Louisiana high school basketball team. Set to begin filming in New Orleans this week, Patriots marks Washington’s first appearance in a studio movie since he exited Grey’s Anatomy last spring. The actor will play Assistant Coach Simmons of John Ehret High, who helps lead his squad to the state championship a year after Hurricane Katrina displaced the school’s students.
