Warner Bros. takes a swing at ‘Stolen’

In a mid-six-figure deal, Warner Bros. Pictures has bought a baseball-themed pitch — with a whopping curveball — titled “Stolen Season” for Jon Shestack and Evan Astrowsky to produce. Johnny Knoxville is reportedly interested in toplining the project. “Stolen” borrows a page from the real-life childhood of former Baltimore Orioles catcher Rick Dempsey, who fell under the spell of charismatic coach John Jennings when he was 13 and playing on a Southern California Pony League baseball team in 1963. By the time the summer was over, Jennings had robbed a string of 20 banks up and down the California coast, using the team’s travel as cover. John Raffo will write the screenplay. He also penned “The Walk On” and “Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story.” No director is yet attached.
