The Ruddy Morgan Organization has acquired feature rights to Gerald A. Browne’s story about improbable hit men, “Swish Hitters.”
The novel centers on a pair of East Hamptons antique dealers who turn to working for the Mob.
Browne’s bestsellers include “Green Ice,” “19 Purchase Street,” “Stone 588,” “11 Harrowhouse” and “Hot Siberian.” “Green Ice” was released in 1981 as a caper movie set in South America and starring Ryan O’Neal, Anne Archer and Omar Sharif.
Morgan Freeman’s Revelations Entertainment and the Ruddy Morgan Organization are producing Warner Bros.’ “Million Dollar Baby,” a selection from F.X. Toole’s collection of boxing stories “Rope Burns: Stories From the Corner.” Project stars Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman and Hilary Swank.
