“The mostly-true story of former all-star MLB pitcher Bill ‘Spaceman’ Lee. In the twilight of a long career as one of baseball’s all-time great eccentrics, Lee (Josh Duhamel) is cut from the Montreal Expos in 1982. Though Lee finds himself blackballed by the rest of the league for his outspoken politics (his views being “somewhere to left of Che Guevara”) and notoriously enthusiastic drug use, he refuses to quit the game. As of 2016, he still hasn’t.”
And a new cartoon poster:
The strange but true story of gonzo pitcher Bill “Spaceman” Lee.
I don’t care much about baseball, but if I had to pick a favorite player it would certainly be Spaceman!
The film is written and directed by Brett Rapkin. It will be released on August 19, 2016.
