Disney+ is developing a TV series based on “The Sandlot,” Variety has learned.
David Mickey Evans, the co-writer and director of the 1993 film, is attached to write and executive produce the series. It is said to take in 1984 and would focus on the children of the original characters.
The first “Sandlot” film took place in the summer of 1962 and followed a group of friends who spent their days playing baseball while also dealing with a menacing dog that lived next to the titular sandlot that they referred to as The Beast. The film starred Tom Guiry, Mike Vitar, Karen Allen, Denis Leary, James Earl Jones, Patrick Renna, Chauncey Leopardi, Marty York, Brandon Quintin Adams, Grant Gelt, Shane Obedzinski, and Victor DiMattia. It grossed just over $33 million at the box office and has gone on to become a cult classic. Two direct-to-video sequels were produced in 2005 and 2007.
Don't ruin it with a shitty tv show that will inevitably devolve into pushing agenda politics.
Oh you know it's coming.. Introducing new characters and silliness.. I can see a new character already!
"We cannot play with her.. she's a g-g-girl!"
"Little did we know that she'd be better than Benny and taught him everything he knew. This despite only having one leg and helping her single mom with her autistic brother, because she was the strongest of us."
"During those times growing up as a kid you were told what was normal and what wasn't. So when I seen Ham grab Kenny and kiss him passionately behind the tree house I was at first a little weirded out. I was a kid, my two friends were locking lips but I knew deep down this was real love, far more real love than what my Mom and Bill had."
"After the rush of Squints kissing Wendy wore off, we knew what we had to do. We had to turn him into the Police for sexual assault and for exposing not only Wendy but the entire neighborhood to his toxic masculinity. It was the bravest thing any of us would ever do."
