3 Nights in August
In what is the third book today to be adapted to the bigscreen, this time we avoid any fictional characters or zombies. Instead we are meant to follow Tony La Russa into the heart of baseball.
Kevin Pollak to Pen Three Nights in August
According to Variety, Palm-Star Entertainment has teamed with Red Bird Cinema to adapt the Buzz Bissinger book 3 Nights in August for the bigscreen.
Actor-scribe Kevin Pollak will pen the adaptation.
3 Nights in August centers on a three-game baseball series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Chicago Cubs in 2003.
For the book, Bissinger gained access to Cardinals manager Tony La Russa.
Palm-Star CEO and co-founder Kevin Frakes will produce along with Red Bird's John Loar and Pollak. Bissinger and La Russa will draw exec producer credit.
I was recently discussing with a friend whether baseball was actually a sport or a game of skill; similar to chess. It is hard to imagine another game that allows you to eat, spit, chew gum and get buzzed while the play is still on.
