GOLF ON THE SILVER SCREEN: CADDYSHACK MEETS FIELD OF DREAMS
Published June 5, 1995
With Kevin Costner set to star in a golf film by movie maker Ron Shelton and screenwriter John Norville ("Bull Durham" and "White Men Can't Jump"), the L.A. TIMES' Thomas Bonk writes that golf "is a downright hot entertainment property, a smoking two- iron off the tee." Clint Eastwood owns the rights to Michael Murphy's book, "Golf in the Kingdom." Shelton: "'Kingdom,' I'm sure is pretty cerebral. Mine will be more earthy and vulgar, I hope." Shelton's project has a tentative title of "Tin Cup," but he favors "Let the Big Dog Eat" (L.A. TIMES, 6/4).
