Glenn Beck's 'Christmas Sweater' Movie in Turnaround
Glenn Beck has yet to conquer the movie business.
His 2008 book The Christmas Sweater, based on his life, became the basis for a public event in which he told his stories.
He sold film rights to producer Stephen Scheffer, a former top HBO executive, and Sony picked up the project in 2009 as a possible direct-to-video movie to be shot on a relatively low budget (less than $8 million).
But there were budget and script issues, and after a year it went into turnaround.
Beck's politics apparently weren't an issue, and Scheffer says he's now talking with several studios about making the movie.
