HBO Acquires Rights To Lacrosse Book

HBO has acquired the rights to former Duke lacrosse head coach Mike Pressler and Don Yaeger’s book, It’s Not About the Truth. The book chronicles the Duke Lacrosse allegations, from the initial indictments in March 2006 all the way until their pronounced innocence in April 2007. If produced, the film will be the first movie about the case.

The book from Pressler and Yaeger, a former SI associate editor, was released in June 2007 and came out in paperback in May. The other most famous book about the lacrosse case, Until Proven Innocent by K.C. Johnson and Stuart Taylor, was released in September.

So now comes the obvious question: Who are the actors? Offer your suggestions in the comments section below, and we’ll compile a list in the next few days.
