ABERDEEN (AP) -- Former Northern State coach Don Meyer is going to be on the big screen.

The media reports that an independent film about the coach is currently in the works. Producers for the film were in Aberdeen this week scouting locations.

The news comes days after Meyer had surgery to implant a pacemaker. Meyer also recently had three heart valves replaced with mechanical ones and had a hole in his heart repaired. His heart problems are related to cancer that doctors discovered after a 2008 car accident that cost Meyer part of his left leg.

Meyer retired from coaching two years ago with an NCAA record 923 victories. He is considered the winningest men's college basketball coach.
