It’s been reported that Fox is developing a film based on the Supreme Court‘s ruling that legalized same sex marriage across the country!
The producers of The Fault in Our Stars are helming the project, which will follow the story of Jim Obergefell — the lead plaintiff in the court case which resulted in the historic ruling!
Obergefell, an Ohio real estate agent, married his longtime partner John Arthur in 2013.
After Arthur died, Ohio refused to list him as Obergefell’s spouse on his death certificate — so Obergefell filed a lawsuit that went all the way up to the Supreme Court!
Producer Wyck Godfrey explained the many layers that the story promises, saying:
“It’s a transcendent love story about someone who goes to such a length for love that he ends up changing the world.”
Wow, it sounds like this is going to be a very powerful movie!
While the film probably won’t be finished for at least two years, we bet actors are already lining up to audition for the Oscar baited role!
