Sox throw curve to 'Pitch'

29 October 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The Boston Red Sox's World Series win has forced a rewrite of Fox 2000's Fever Pitch, which is set during the 2004 Red Sox season. The movie, a romantic comedy based on a book by Nick Hornby that stars Drew Barrymore as a woman who falls for Jimmy Fallon's Red Sox-obsessed sports addict, is in production in Toronto and depicts the Red Sox losing just as the baseball team has for the past 85 years. "We had gone into the movie anticipating that the Red Sox would not win the World Championship, and it would be another dismal ending for them, but love would conquer all," said Peter Farrelly, who is directing with brother Bobby. "But what happened because of this turn of events, we now have the double whammy of a happy love story and a championship team at the same time." Because of the reversal of fortune, the movie's writers, Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel, have been in rewrite mode to incorporate the championship run. »

The comedy writing team of Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel adapted Pitch and Americanized it so that the project focuses on baseball. The story line follows Fallon as a man obsessed with the Boston Red Sox and Barrymore as a woman caught in the middle. Strickland and Skye would play Barrymore's best friends. »

Barrymore, Fallon hot with 'Fever'

9 July 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Fever Pitch is heating up as Drew Barrymore is set and Jimmy Fallon is in negotiations to topline the Fox 2000 project based on Nick Hornby's book. The Farrelly brothers are in talks to direct, and if a deal can be made for the comedy duo, they will helm Fever first and then immediately segue to The Three Stooges for Warner Bros. Pictures. Hornby's book -- described by some as an autobiography and a soccer bible rolled into one -- centers on the British author's obsession with soccer, specifically the team Arsenal. The comedy writing team of Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel adapted Fever and Americanized it, with the project now focused on baseball. »
