Boulevard Distro Goes Into Preproduction of Gay Baseball Film
MISSION HILLS, Calif. — Boulevard Distribution has begun pre-production on what the company said could be its most controversial film to date.
“Pischer, A Lefty’s Legacy” is described as a first fantasy reenactment video based on the life and times of a famous pitcher. The DVD is inspired by Sandy Koufax, all-star pitcher of the Los Angeles Dodgers and perhaps one of the greatest baseball players of all time.
Penned and co-directed by Andy Goode, the title will star Gabriel D’Allasandro, as the embattled ball player. Goode will also co-star in the film playing himself. Karsin Knightly is slated to portray an African-American ballplayer who is reminiscent of Jackie Robinson and is Pischer’s love interest.
Gunnar Mac, a Boulevard discovery, will portray a certain baseball pitcher who later becomes a great baseball manager, in a softcore scene. The company said that the best-kept secret of the film will be the guest narrator, who is only being touted as a surprise guest Gayvn Best Actor Winner from the past.
“This is a film that had to be made,” said Goode, writer, co-director and co-star of the film. “There have been many parodies, but nothing quite like this. Baseball is a man’s man sport and is the perfect backdrop to a sizzling, hot gay movie. ‘Pischer, A Lefty’s Legacy’ will do well and is bound to cause a stir.”
The film will be shot on location in Los Angeles. Boulevard plans to release the title during the Pride Los Angeles festivities at the beginning of June, as homage to the city and professional baseball.
