The Long And Wenders Road

Wim Wenders will produce and consult on “Open Road,” an independently-financed father-son dramedy directed by his “Land of Plenty” scribe Michael Meredith says Variety.

The story centers on the adult son of a baseball legend who, together with his girlfriend, embarks on a road trip with his estranged father.

Former pro athletes such as Yogi Berra and Johnny Bench also could have walk-on roles in the movie. Production aims to begin this summer in Louisiana and other parts of the South.
