‘Holes’ Author Louis Sachar on How Important It Was That Film Didn’t End Up ‘Soft, Fluffy’

‘Holes’ Author Louis Sachar on How Important It Was That Film Didn’t End Up ‘Soft, Fluffy’
Louis Sachar got a lot of calls from Hollywood after his book “Holes,” which turns 20 years old this June, won the Newbery Book Award and the National Book Award for Young People’s Literature.

But Sachar was so choosey about who he’d sell the book’s film rights to that it took five years before “Holes” the movie, starring Sigourney Weaver, Jon Voight and a young Shia Labeouf, hit the big screen. Now as the film likewise celebrates its 15th anniversary this month, Sachar is thrilled it’s his book, as well the movie, that is still remembered.

“That was one of my concerns actually when I first decided to make the movie. I hope it doesn’t keep people from reading the book, that it just becomes a movie now,” the author told TheWrap. “I’m now hearing from kids who are reading the book in school and are just now realizing there was a movie made before they were born, which is amazing to me. The movie is 15 years old, and these kids are 10, 12 years old reading it. So the movie is ancient history to them.”

Holes” is about Stanley Yelnats, a kid with rotten luck who winds up in a correctional camp for boys for a crime he didn’t commit. Stanley and his fellow “campers” are forced to dig a five-foot deep hole every day in order to “build character,” but Stanley comes to suspect that it’s just a ruse for the camp’s warden to find something buried on the grounds.

Sachar explained that though it’s a grim subject, he was inspired to write a “fun story” and “grand adventure” in the vein of William Goldman’s “The Princess Bride.” So it was important to him to work with a producer and director like Andrew Davis (“The Fugitive”) who could bring to the project a strong cast and would take the book seriously.

“I didn’t want ‘Holes’ being turned into some soft, fluffy film,” Sachar said. “I liked the idea that it would be a director coming from making tough, gritty films making it.”

Disney

Sachar made his screenwriting debut on the film, guiding some of Davis’s choices to limit the amount of voiceover narration and preserve the story’s mythical flashbacks.

“I was surprised that he asked me to write the screenplay. My first reaction was, ‘no, get someone who knows what they’re doing,” Sachar said. “Even though I wrote it, and I was there, I never like movies of books that I like. So I was surprised how well the movie came out.”

Sachar remembers liking the film so much, he would sit through screenings of the film where he and Davis toured it for teachers across the country ahead of its release. Now 15 years removed from those screenings, he’s hearing from teachers who read the book and saw the film as kids, grew up to become teachers and are showing “Holes” to their own students.

“People had the sense this was something special,” Sachar said. “Certainly that was the case on the set. I was constantly being told by people on the crew, it’s not always like this. Everything felt like family, and there wasn’t a whole lot of ego involved. Everyone was just trying to make a good movie.”

“The Sandlot” Cast Reunites 25 Years Later for Friendly Game

After creating a moment that has lasted for 25 years the Sandlot crew decided to get together for a friendly game to see if they still have it. The crew has certainly changed from back in the day, as you might expect, but it’s still great to see them, well, most of them show up for a reunion that’s been a long time in the making. You could argue that the group wasn’t complete, as Benny wasn’t there, but the rest of them managed to show up and were just as convincing as they were in the movie over two

The Sandlot Cast Just Reunited After 25 Years, Because "Legends Never Die"

  • BuzzSugar
A post shared by Gadi Schwartz (@gadinbc) on Apr 12, 2018 at 6:00am Pdt

Can you freakin' believe it's already been 25 years since the Sandlot boys spent their Summer trying not to hit baseballs over the fence for fear of that ginormous drooling dog? Yeah, same - I can't either. To celebrate the iconic film's 25th anniversary, the crew assembled again to relive their glory days with the Today show, and we just about passed out from a nostalgia overload. Eight of the nine main cast members were present for the legendary reunion, including Patrick Renna ("Ham"), Chauncey Leopardi ("Squints"), and Marty York ("Yeah-Yeah"). Mike Vitar (Benny "The Jet" Rodriguez) unfortunately wasn't there, and we're a bit sad because he's grown up to be quite the stud muffin.

According to David Mickey Evans, who wrote, directed and narrated the film, shooting the film was “the greatest summer of our lives.”

Patrick Renna, who played Ham, said he showed the film to his son for the first time, but “he’s really big on ‘Moana,'” unfortunately. Chauncey Leopardi, who played Squints, confessed that his daughter “thinks I’m just kind of a dork.”

The Sandlot Turns 25: Memories That the Stars Will Remember For-Eh-Ver

The Sandlot Turns 25: Memories That the Stars Will Remember For-Eh-Ver
The '90s were an incredible decade for sports films. For those of us who grew up then, our childhoods are forever intertwined with classic moments from movies like The Mighty Ducks, Angels in the Outfield, Rookie of the Year, Little Big League and more. But there's perhaps no more beloved sports movie than The Sandlot. The insanely quotable movie introduced some of us to the concept of s'mores, convinced us to never try chewing tobacco (especially not at the carnival), made us long for summer days at the community pool and somehow had us all in love with the idea of playing baseball—especially if it meant we'd find a friend as cool as Benny "The Jet" Rodriguez. Set in the...

'The Sandlot' Celebrates 25 Years: Favorite Quotes, Cast Confessions, Sequel Teases and More
Patrick Renna still recalls shooting a sequence of the 1993 film The Sandlot with director David Mickey Evans when the helmer was "on a bullhorn, just shouting lines." It was "so great" to have a helmer shouting profanities out for the actor to repeat back to camera when he was a kid, Renna said.

Twenty-five years after the release of the beloved baseball movie, which starred primarily children, Evans came together with now fully-grown castmembers Tom Guiry (who played Scotty Smalls), Chauncey Leopardi (Michael "Squints" Palledorous), Brandon Quintin Adams (Kenny DeNunez), Shane Obedzinski (Tommy "Repeat" Timmons), Victor Dimattia (Timmy Timmons), Marty York (Alan "Yeah-Yeah" McClennan), Grant Gelt (Bertram Grover Weeks) and...

‘The Sandlot’ at 25: Why the ’90s Cult Classic Will Live ‘For-Ev-Ver’

‘The Sandlot’ at 25: Why the ’90s Cult Classic Will Live ‘For-Ev-Ver’
Five years ago, “The Sandlot” director David Mickey Evans and stars Chauncey Leopardi and Patrick Renna watched the Boston Red Sox take batting practice. When they stepped onto the field, David Ortiz, Big Papi himself, ran over to them, gave them all a big bear hug and said, “You guys are my heroes.”

Now upon its 25th anniversary, “The Sandlot” is still being embraced by a new generation of players. This spring training, it was the Milwaukee Brewers who celebrated the ’90s cult classic, reenacting a famous scene from the film.

“I don’t know how many people sent me that clip,” Evans told TheWrap. “How many other professional sports teams, hockey, football, basketball, have ever gotten together to re-enact a scene from a famous hockey, football or basketball film? I don’t know, but I would venture a guess none.”

“Every time I see an athlete mention ‘The Sandlot,’ it’s cool to know that at some point in these guys’ lives, they related to the film for whatever reason. It’s still nostalgic for them,” Leopardi told TheWrap. “We kind of shaped their… Well, I don’t want to take full credit for why they play the game, but it’s clearly enough of a part for them to want to grow up and be pinnacle of the league.”

Released on April 7, 1993, “The Sandlot” has since cemented its place in film history as the quintessential kids sports movie. A group of kids in a small town spend their summer bumming around a rundown old baseball diamond they’ve christened The Sandlot. They welcome a new, dorky and naïve kid nicknamed Smalls into their mix, and he gets himself in “the biggest pickle” when he smashes a baseball signed by Babe Ruth over a fence into a backyard guarded by a monstrous attack dog known as The Beast.

It’s a charming story with instantly memorable faces and dozens of quotable lines (“You’re killing me Smalls!), and though the film only made a modest $32 million in its theatrical run, Evans and Leopardi started noticing the film gaining popularity around the time of its release on DVD in 2002.

“When the DVD hit, it just took off. It’s never slowed down,” Evans said. “That’s when I noticed it. This film is not going away. It’s here forever.”

Now a 25th Anniversary Collector’s Edition of the film is available on Blu-Ray, complete with Topps baseball cards for each kid in the movie. But for years, fans would show up at events for the film adorned with memorabilia, including tattoos of Ham, Benny “The Jet” Rodriguez and of Leopardi’s character Squints.

“There’s a Squints portrait on some dude’s ass,” Leopardi said. “There’s somebody out there sitting on my face.”

The Sandlot” is set in 1962 but, to many fans, feels timeless, a perfect, idyllic relic of Anytown, USA. It may seem like an adaptation of a classic grade school novel, but Evans came up with the story himself after his younger brother was bitten by a particularly nasty dog named Hercules (the same name as in the movie) while he was trying to retrieve a lost baseball.

“That was not my childhood,” Evans said. “The idea that things are bigger than life, like that dog being six feet tall, that childhood imagination sort of aspect, that rings true for me. But having lots of friends, my little brother and I didn’t have that sort of thing. For me, the movie is a version of the way I wish my childhood would’ve been.”

Evans explained “The Sandlot” was set in 1962 because of a subplot that was eventually cut from the film: In 1962, Dodgers great Maury Wills chased down the stolen base record by swiping 104 bags in a single season. Squints would listen to Dodgers games on the radio, and every time Wills would steal a base, Benny “The Jet” Rodriguez would try and do the same. When Benny later gets a pack of Topps baseball cards that are all of Maury Wills, he’s inspired to become a ball player.

Evans said that audiences have either seen themselves in one of the many memorable faces in The Sandlot or wished they were one of them. And as a film about embracing legends (“Heroes get remembered, but legends never die), as Leopardi’s character Squints might say, it’s now become a movie that could live — as Squints famously recites in the film — “for-ev-ver, forrr-evv-verrrr.”

“That’s kind of what the story is about too,” Leopardi said. “It’s about these kids who weren’t supposed to make it there and watched Benny grow up to be a star. That’s the American dream.”

‘The Sandlot’ Turns 25: From Smalls to Squints, Where Are They Now? (Photos)
At the end of “The Sandlot,” the narrator explains how each of the kids ended up as each one fades from the screen. Some moved away, Benny the Jet made it to the big leagues, and Squints married Wendy Peffercorn. Earlier, TheWrap explored why some movies will be remembered but “The Sandlot” will never die. But 25 years later, we’ll explore where the film’s actors actually ended up.

Tom Guiry – Scotty Smalls

After making his film debut with “The Sandlot,” Tom Guiry continued to pursue acting and landed roles in “Mystic River,” “The Revenant” and “Black Hawk Down.” He most recently starred in “Wonder Wheel” and “Sollers Point.”

Mike Vitar – Benny “The Jet” Rodriguez

Mike Vitar continued his reputation as a sporty, teen heartthrob by appearing in both “Mighty Ducks” sequels “D2” and “D3.” His last acting role was in 1997 for a show called “Chicago Hope,” at which point he retired and became a firefighter. But in 2015, Vitar was charged with assault and reached a plea deal to avoid time behind bars in 2017.

Chauncey Leopardi – Squints

Leopardi spoke with TheWrap and says he’s keeping busy with a family and some businesses, as well as appearing at events for “The Sandlot” whenever he can. As an actor he’s also starred in “Freaks and Geeks,” “Gilmore Girls” and most recently “Coldwater” in 2013.

Patrick Renna – Ham

Originally from Boston, Patrick Renna still acts. Outside of “The Sandlot,” he had a memorable leading role in “The Big Green” while still young. More recently, he starred in episodes of “Boston Legal,” “Judging Amy” and 2016’s “Fear, Inc.”

Marty York – Yeah-Yeah

In addition to seriously bulking up, Marty York appeared in episodes of “Boy Meets World” and “The Eric Andre Show.”

Brandon Quintin Adams – Kenny DeNunez

Brandon Quintin Adams, also just Brandon Adams, had small roles in other ’90s hits “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” “Sister-Sister” and “Moesha.” He also did a voice for “Kingdom Hearts 2” and has recorded music as a rapper under the name B. Lee.

Grant Gelt – Bertram Grover Weeks

Grant Gelt had a few acting roles after “The Sandlot,” including “Boy Meets World” and “Hey Arnold!,” but he now works as a music manager.

Victor Dimattia – Timmy Timmons

Victor Dimattia went on two direct two short films and appeared in the 2018 indie “Get Married Or Die.”

Shane Obedzinski – Tommy “Repeat” Timmons

Unlike his onscreen counterpart, Shane Obedzinski didn’t directly follow in the footsteps of his onscreen brother. After leaving acting, he opened a pizza shop in Florida, but was glad to join in for the 20th anniversary festivities.

Marley Shelton – Wendy Peffercorn

Marley Shelton, who played the lifeguard all the boys are gaga over in “The Sandlot” Wendy Peffercorn, has starred in “Sin City,” “Planet Terror,” “Never Been Kissed,” “Death Proof,” “Scream 4” and more. She currently stars on the series “Rise” and will next be seen in Dwayne Johnson’s “Rampage.”

Denis Leary – Bill, Scott’s Stepdad

Taking a role as a fairly straight-laced, if imposing stepdad was a departure for the firebrand comedian back in 1993, but he would eventually move into far more dramatic roles on “Rescue Me” and more. And thankfully, he’s still a fan of “The Sandlot.”

Karen Allen – Scott’s Mom

Following “The Sandlot,” Karen Allen would reprise her more famous role as Marion in “Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull.” She most recently starred in “Year by the Sea” in 2016.

James Earl Jones – Mr. Mertle

It’s like he never really left!

The Beast, P.F. Flyers, L 7 Weenie — they all have one thing in common: The Sandlot. Making its mark on baseball movie culture in the early 1990s, the film quickly became a classic.

Following the antics of a baseball-loving crew of kids who accidently sacrifice a Babe Ruth-signed baseball to the neighborhood dog, The Sandlot captured the heart of young kids who share the love of the game.

The Sandlot Celebrates 25th Anniversary with New Funko Pops and More
In celebration of the upcoming 25th anniversary of The Sandlot on April 7th, 20th Century Fox Consumer Products and Funko have knocked it out of the park with the unveiling of The Sandlot Pop! figures. These figures are arguably some of the best that Funko has ever done with the only complaint being that they didn't make the whole gang, which seems like a pretty big oversight. Hopefully Funko ends up making a series 2, because the demand will surely be high enough.

The new Funko Pop! figures of The Sandlot feature the memorable characters of the beloved coming-of-age baseball film, including the starting lineup of Smalls, Benny, Ham, Squints, The Beast, and a Target exclusive, a Squints & Wendy 2-pack. The Sandlot and Funko Pop! collection will arrive in stores this June. As previously noted, we need the rest of the team. We need Kenny, Yeah Yeah, and the Timmons brothers

Milwaukee Brewers Recreate Iconic Sandlot Scene
The Milwaukee Brewers have re-created one of the most iconic scenes from The Sandlot. Over the years, The Sandlot has gone on to become one of the most beloved movies ever made about baseball, even if it wasn't totally embraced by critics at the time. And, given the age of many players in Major League Baseball, it's a movie a lot of them grew up with. Several members of the Milwaukee Brewers decided to celebrate the movie by taking on one of its most iconic scenes, in honor of its upcoming 25th anniversary.

The Sandlot scene in question is when we're formally introduced to "The Beast." In the scene, Hamilton "Ham" Porter threatens to hit a home run, in the style of Babe Ruth. Unfortunately, he does, which means they no longer have a ball to play with. Smalls, who is unaware of the legend that is The Beast, offers to get the ball,

Members of the baseball team re-made the scene in which Ham hits the baseball over the fence nearly frame-by-frame. Some of the players channel their inner Smalls and Squints as Stephen Vogt’s Ham hits a home run and runs around the field, getting smacked by the other players. The spoof video even featured a very famous cameo. At the end of the original scene, the kids warn that “The Beast” is back there. In the Brewers’ version, “The Beast” is portrayed by...
