Josh Duhamel (“Safe Haven”) and Ernie Hudson (“Ghostbusters”) will star in baseball drama “The Wrong Stuff”.
Based on the bestselling memoir by ex-pitcher Bill ‘Spaceman’ Lee and Ricard Lally, the Brett Rapkin film will tell of “Major League pitcher Lee, a hot-tempered, self-serving madman unable to see himself as anything other than a baseball player. Duhamel is cast as the volatile Lee. Hudson will portray Joe, the only black player and first baseman for the all-white, French Canadian Longeuil Senators amateur club. Hudson’s character, an experienced player with 30 years in the sport, is the stabilizing force on the scrappy team.”
Production begins on the film next week in Los Angeles.
