Andrew Lipsitz has sold his spec script, “The Secret Game,” to Kennedy Marshall for a six-figure sum.

Based on an article written by Scott Ellsworth that appeared in the New York Times last March, the screenplay tells the story of a clandestine basketball game in 1944 during which the Duke University varsity lost to an all-black team from the North Carolina College for Negroes.

The Disney-based production company purchased this script about the first inter-racial collegiate basketball game in a preemptive bid. The pic is now on the fast track of development.

Creative Artists Agency’s David Styne and Sonya Rosenfeld repped Lipsitz.
