Carrey & Gyllenhaal set for Damn Yankees

Stage star-turned-moviemaker Todd Graff is set to direct the movie, which will be produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron – the men behind Oscar-winning film Chicago.

Graff will adapt Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel’s screenplay.

Damn Yankees opened on Broadway in 1955 and ran for well over 1,000 performances.
