Fox 2000 has acquired J. Mills Goodloe’s script “Depth Of Field,” an Americanized version of Lynne Truss’ 2009 memoir “Get Her Off The Pitch”.
Truss, a reporter who hated sports, was sent by her editor to cover the World Cup and spent four years covering major sporting events throughout Europe and America. Along the way, she slowly became a convert to sports.
The project is being shaped into a starring and producing vehicle for Reese Witherspoon. Karen Rosenfelt and Bruna Papnadrea will also produce.
