Tin Cup Director Set For Course Again
Golf comedy has Quaid Q-ing up

14 August 2009  |  Written by Emily Phillips  |  Source: The Hollywood Reporter

Who said golf was boring? Obviously not director Ron Shelton  as he takes on another film based on the sport. The Tin Cup helmer - and man also responsible for sports-based films such as White Men Can't Jump and Bull Durham - has teamed up with Cup co-writer John Norville for the new comedy called Q School.

The depiction of one of life's gentler sport has Hollywood's middle-aged actors - including Dennis Quaid and Tim Allen - q-ing up for a role.

The indie film will follow a handful of PGA hopefuls as they move from Q(ualifying)-School and on through the stages of the competition and their personal trials and tribulations.

Ron and John are also currently tied up working on baseball flick Our Lady Of The Ballpark, as well as being tipped to adapt the Barry Bonds steroids expose called Game of Shadows for HBO.

Fantastic
Tin Cup is one of the most underrated comedies of the last 20 years. Ron Shelton is excellent with sports and it will be good to see Quaid getting into something a bit lighter than pretending to be a scientist/saviour of the planet. More
