Jim Sheridan Is “Playing with the Enemy”

Filmmaker Jim Sheridan (“In America,” “In the Name of the Father”) has committed to rewrite and direct “Playing With The Enemy” at New Myth Entertainment.

Based on the Gary W. Moore book of the same name about his father, the story follows how 15-year-old Gene Moore was a baseball prodigy drafted by the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1940.

Moore joined the Navy and was stationed at an isolated P.O.W. camp in Louisiana. There, he taught German prisoners how to play baseball.

Sheridan, David Ranes and Tom De Santo are producing.
