Showtime to explore Winchell murder in Soldier's Girl
Showtime has announced production of a new original picture Soldier's Girl, about the murder of soldier Barry Winchell, who was involved with Calpernia Addams, a transgendered woman. The film details their relationship pitted against the growing animosity of Winchell's roommate, Justin Fisher, who ultimately ignited antigay sentiment in the barracks, leading to Winchell's 1999 beating death. Frank Pierson (Conspiracy, Citizen Cohn) will direct, and the cast includes Troy Garity (Bandits), Lee Pace, and Shawn Hatosy (In & Out, Borstal Boy). Out writer Ron Nyswaner (Philadelphia) wrote the script and will coproduce.
