    Fox
    Planning Movie About Supreme Court Gay-Marriage Ruling

    Marriage equality has come to the United States—and now
    it’s coming to the big screen.

    Fox has set its sights on a new fact-based drama about
    the case that last month led the Supreme Court to rule in favor of same-sex
    marriage, EW has confirmed. Wyck Godfrey (The
    Fault in Our Stars
    ) and Marty Bowen are set to produce.

    As first reported by the New York Times, Fox made a deal
    for the life rights of Jim Obergefell, who successfully petitioned the court to
    force his home state of Ohio to recognize his marriage to his partner of 21
    years, John Arthur (the pair married in Maryland only months before John’s
    death in 2013). He likely would be a central figure in the film.

    The studio also acquired the life rights of Obergefell’s
    attorney Al Gerhardstein, as well as an-yet-unpublished book that Obergefell
    intends to write with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Debbie Cenziper.
    According to the New York Times, the book is slated to be titled 21 Years to Midnight and is expected to
    be sold to a publisher possibly as soon as this week.

    No word yet on a screenwriter, a cast, or a release date,
    but the project will be overseen by the studio’s Fox 2000 division.
