‘Calico Joe’, John Grisham’s Baseball Novel, Being Turned Into a Movie By George Clooney (and Bob Dylan)
Posted on Friday, October 16th, 2020 by Chris Evangelista
Stop me if you heard this one: Geroge Clooney, Jon Grisham, and Bob Dylan get together and say, “Let’s make a movie!” No, this isn’t the set-up of a joke. Instead, it’s news about a new movie. George Clooney is considering directing Calico Joe, a film adapted from the John Grisham novel of the same name. And Bob Dylan’s Grey Water Park Productions is set to produce. While Grisham is primarily known for his legal thrillers, Calico Joe is about a baseball player in the 1970s who ends up in a coma for three decades after being struck by a pitch.
