"Dock" is in the works.
There is perhaps no greater endorsement of LSD than the no-hitter Dock Ellis pitched in 1970 while high on acid. Ice Cube has signed to produce Dock, an upcoming film about Ellis, an ace pitcher, drug abuser, and outspoken critic of MLB' systemic racism. O'Shea Jackson will appear in the leading role.
Dock is the first project to come from Cube Vision’s strategic partnership with AID Partners, a media investment company founded by Hong Kong entrepreneur Kelvin Wu that calls for Cube Vision to develop its own slate, hire its own screenwriters and then bring fully developed projects to studios.
“Joey Poach’s script is one of the most heartfelt, honest and emotional pieces of material I’ve read in years, and I think the complexities of the character are a perfect fit for O’Shea,” said [Ice Cube's producer David] Permut.
To learn about Ellis' legendary no-hitter, watch Victory Journal's superb, succinct account below. "It was easier to pitch with the LSD because I was so used to medicating myself," Ellis explained. "That's the way I was dealing with the fear of failure. The fear of losing, the fear of winning."
