Movie About SCOTUS Case On Marriage Equality Already in the Works

Movie About SCOTUS Case On Marriage Equality Already in the Works

Less than two weeks ago, a monumental Supreme Court decision was reached that guaranteed marriage equality for same-sex couples. This piece of American history that will populate text books and be remembered as one of the largest steps forward for the LGBT community will, in the great American tradition, also be turned into a feature film.

The New York Times reported that 20th Century Fox bought the life rights to Jim Obergefell, the lead plaintiff in the law suit that resulted in the recognition of same-sex marriage in the country. Obergefell’s attorney, Al Gerhardstein, sold his life rights as well.

The studio also acquired screen rights to the unpublished book about the case that Obergefell plans to write, titled 21 Years to Midnight.

Though the film is at least two years from being finished, the story’s Oscar-worthiness is undeniable.

    Too slow.

    If this happened in Nigeria, I trust my people: Posters of the movie would have been flying around the very next day.
