Ben Affleck ‘The Trade’ Yankees. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are Red Sox fans, so how does ‘The Trade’ help the Yankees movie? In addition, there is new controversy brewing that could have the film blocked.
Mike Kekich isn’t worried about the Yankees. He’s worried about himself and maybe he has good reasons. The film is about two former baseball players who swap wives.
The former Yankee is “panic-stricken” about Damon and Affleck’s movie, The Trade, which depicts Kekich and Fritz Peterson’s wife swap in the 1970s, according to the New York Post. Kekich is trying to prevent the film from being made.
“Kekich is panic-stricken,” a source told the Post. “He is freaked out that those working on the movie found out where he is. He isn’t too keen on having the scandal dredged up again after all this time.”
The film is only in development, and the Post notes that neither Major League Baseball nor the Yankees has approved the script. Still, if Damon and Affleck can pull it off, you have to wonder if they’ll hold another premiere at Fenway Park. It’d only seem right.
