HOOP DREAMS DUO COURTS GRANT HILL FOR CONNIE HAWKINS MOVIE

          The two men who did the documentary "Hoop Dreams" have
     signed with Dreamworks and Producer GARY DAVID GOLDBERG to
     do a biopic of basketball Hall of Famer CONNIE HAWKINS, and
     hope to get the Pistons' GRANT HILL to make his film debut
     and play the lead role.  PETER GILBERT, who along with Steve
     James worked with Hill before on a Fila commercial, said
     Hill's size and agility are "perfect" to portray the NBA
     star who almost never went pro due to a point-shaving
     scandal in college.  Gilbert:  "Like Connie, he can play a
     quiet and shy guy" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 1/12).
