Disney to Adapt ‘Coach’
Sources announced that Disney has recently optioned Michael Lewis’s novel, Coach: Lessons on the Game of Life, which is based on a true story about Lewis’s baseball mentor Coach Fitz.
Lewis, who has several sports-themed scripts under his belt including Moneyball and The Blind Side (of which he wrote both books the films were based on,) will also be penning the script for Coach. Gil Netter will produce.
Thus far, the project is still in early development stages. We will be sure to let you know more as further news develops.
