Producer Gerald R. Molen is set to develop a film adaptation titled "Playing With the Enemy" based on the Gary W. Moore's book.
The flow of film adaptations seems to go on more heavily nowadays. Trailing behind those who have revealed their plan to make such features, prolific producer Gerald R. Molen has come up with a new one entitled "Playing With the Enemy" based on Gary W. Moore's recently published nonfiction book of the same title.
Set to begin the principal photography of the movie, of which full title is "Playing With the Enemy: A Baseball Prodigy, a World at War, and a Field of Broken Dreams", by February 2007, Molen will develop the project through his WhiteLight Entertainment production company with David Ranes and Moore's son Toby Moore penning the screenplay.
As for its premise, the film is likely to stay close to the story of the original version which revolves around events experienced by the author's father, Gene Moore, during World War II after being drafted by Brooklyn Dodgers in 1940.
Aside from "Playing With the Enemy", Molen has been confirmed to also develop "Lupin the 3rd", a live-action adaptation of Japanese anime action-adventure via the same studio, which is slated to start production on action drama "Brimstone" next month.
