An R.A. Dickey Biopic is Coming; Buzz Bissinger to Write
Wherever I Wind Up, the memoir of Blue Jays' knuckleballer and consensus greatest pitcher of all-time R.A. Dickey, could soon see a movie adaptation. Who will play Dickey is currently unknown, but Gucci-addict Buzz Bissinger is attached as the writer:
Actors Ben McKenzie and Logan Marshall-Green have joined forces to launch the shingle A Thing Or Two Productions. They come to the table in a big way. Tom Rothman’s TriStar Pictures has made a deal on a baseball memoir which the duo will produce with Michael De Luca. TriStar has optioned Wherever I Wind Up, the memoir by pitcher R.A. Dickey about his unusual life journey. Buzz Bissinger has been set to write the script. It becomes another eclectic project for Rothman’s upstart division.
Here's hoping Grant Balfour plays himself. [Deadline]
