D'Aquila's screenplay, Not Before Me (based on his stage play, Uptown) was purchased by Concord/New Horizons with D'Aquila attached to star.  On the production end, D'Aquila is co-executive producer of the upcoming documentary The Hill Chris Climbed: The Gridiron Heroes Story written and directed by Andrew Lauer.
