Grisham’s ‘Bleachers’ headed to theaters

J. Mills Goodloe is adapting John Grisham’s high school football novel “Bleachers” for Revolution Studios. The film will be directed by Don Burgess. Grisham’s 2004 novel was a No. 1 New York Times bestseller and is one of his few non-legal thrillers. The feature film is about a high school football hero returning to his small-town Southern home to join a vigil for a dying coach, who was both loved and feared by his players. This is not the first time Revolution has adapted a Grisham novel. Studio also produced “Christmas With the Kranks,” starring Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis, based on Grisham’s book “Skipping Christmas.”
