“Moneyball” opens in September, and this bit of Billy Beane hagiography is the first film ever to revolve around a minor character in ’80s Mets’ history.
But Hollywood being the recycling plant that it is, there are a few more such projects on the way:
“Tucker: The Man and His Dream” is the offbeat tale of Tucker Ashford and his recurring dream that he’s “like, falling and junk.”
“Legend of a Mind” finds Tim Leary taking massive amounts of LSD in a fruitless effort to raise his consciousness (and lower his ERA) to Seaver-like levels.
“D’yar Mill’er” is a documentary that explores the pitcher’s enduring obsession with Led Zeppelin.
See you at the movies!
