Just weeks after the U.S. Supreme Court legalized gay marriage in the contentious Obergefell v. Hodges ruling, Variety is reporting that there’s a feature film in the works about Jim Obergefell, the lead plaintiff in the case. The movie is being developed by Fox 2000 Pictures, with the company purchasing the rights to Obergefell’s story as well as the life story of his attorney Al Gerhardstein.
The company also purchased the rights to a book proposal by Obergefell titled, “21 Years to Midnight,” the outlet reported. Producers Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey are being brought in to work on the film, with their past credits including “Twilight” and “The Fault in Our Stars,” among other well-known films. FULL REPORT
