 MOVIE UPDATE November 3, 2018

Filmmaker and screenwriter, ANGELO PIZZO, recently made an appearance at the museum to talk about penning the script of the upcoming movie, Shoeless Joe--The True Story.  Best known for writing scripts for such movies as RUDY, HOOSIERS, and MY ALL-AMERICAN, Pizzo also wrote for television's ST. ELSEWHERE and HILL STREET BLUES.

 

Speaking about Jackson's story, Pizzo said, "I was immediately intrigued.  There's a bit of a mystery about who Shoeless Joe was and what he represented, a kind of innocence in America at the turn of the century.  And, of course, the scandal.  And yet there is something about the scandal itself that I wasn't clear on, and I don't think that anybody is clear on--how culpable was he?  I would like to tell the story to people who know nothing about this and make them want to see what happens next."

Producer Renee James and Co-Producer Frank Bilotta joined Pizzo in meeting the many folks who asked for autographs and photos.  Producer James, originally from Greenwood, SC, has worked tirelessly for years developing plans to create a film about Jackson, one of the most beloved ball players in baseball history.  Filming will take place in South Carolina, Georgia, and possibly Chicago.  The movie will premier the latter part of 2019, the 100th year anniversary of the infamous 1919 World Series.

Pizzo's visit included touring the museum, viewing Joe Jackson's original Will which shows his rare signature, and Jackson's 1917 World Series ring. 

Oscar winner Billy Bob Thornton is Executive Producer of the film.  According to Thornton, “It’s an important story to tell.”

We couldn’t agree more!

BRONZE PLAQUE DEDICATED

The 18" x 24" bronze plaque shown below was unveiled at the Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum by donors Mike and Lori Wallach.  Located on the brick wall next to the front door of the museum, the plaque is a reminder that although Jackson has yet to be inducted into the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, he is beloved in his hometown.
