Bench Warmers: According to Variety, Revolution is taking a swing at Bruce Nash's baseball pitch.
Revolution has bought diamond-themed drama To Wally Ward from the reality TV mogul ("For Love Or Money") and his Nash Entertainment shingle.
Angelo Pizzo (Rudy, Hoosiers) is writing the screenplay from Nash's original story. Nash will produce; Robert Kosberg (Twelve Monkeys) is exec producer.
The story concerns a down-and-out baseball fan who comes across a ball autographed by the 1957 Brooklyn Dodgers and inscribed "To Wally Ward." The fan, determined to return the historic ball to its original owner, goes through a journey of self-discovery on his hunt for the mysterious Ward.
