Producer acquires film rights to gay baseball novel

Andrew Lang—producer of the upcoming film Loverboy starring Kevin Bacon—has acquired film rights to The Dreyfus Affair, Peter Lefcourt’s seriocomic novel about a major league shortstop who falls in love with his second baseman. A film adaptation of the best-selling 1992 novel had lingered in development at Disney, Fox, and New Line before Lang acquired the rights through his Andrew Lang Productions banner. According to a statement, the decision was not motivated by a recent Los Angeles Times story in which The Dreyfus Affair was noted as a project that could benefit from the runaway success of Brokeback Mountain.

“The time is right for The Dreyfus Affair to be made into a film,” said Lang, who had been negotiating the rights for the past two months. “At its heart, Peter’s groundbreaking novel is a crowd-pleasing love story. Our film will remain faithful to the book’s upbeat and provocative roots, which is why we are looking at directors who have demonstrated a razor’s-edge sense of comedic timing.”

Lefcourt is working on a new adaptation and will serve as a producer along with Lang. Lefcourt’s other novels include The Woody, The Deal, and The Manhattan Beach Project, a skewering of reality television. (Advocate.com)

The Woody


Seriously? A book about homosexual baseball players called The Woody? Is this a joke?

They said those are the titles of his other novels. The Woody, after a brief search at Amazon.com, is a book based more about politics.

Hmm, after reading more about the book it sounds even more controversial. In the book Dreyfus who is white, falls in love with his black 2nd baseman. I can see the protesters now.
