Kindred Media Group is about to play the 'game.' The movie studio has acquired North American distribution rights to "Game 6," a comedy drama flick which is directed by Michael Hoffman and starring the like of Michael Keaton and Robert Downey Jr..
The film is based on an original screenplay by acclaimed novelist Don DeLillo and produced by Amy Robinson, Griffin Dunne, Leslie Urdang, and Christina Weiss Lurie. The story of the film begins when on the eve of the opening of his newest play playwright Nicky Rogan is fixated on failure. But not without reason. As Rogan's day begins, his marriage is in shambles, his lead actor has a parasite in his brain causing him to forget his lines, there is asbestos in the air, and he is terrified of the feared critic Steven Schwimmer who is so hated that he's taken to carrying a gun to the theatre. All of this and it just so happens to be October 25, 1986. A day that every Red Sox fan will never forget. And Nicky Rogan has been a die-hard Red Sox fan forever.
"Game 6" will open in major markets including Boston, New York and Los Angeles on Friday, March 3, 2006.
