Mednick and Ward Developing Right Stuff, Wrong Sex


Producer Scott Mednick (300) and David S. Ward (The Sting) are developing a movie about the secret women’s space program, based on Margaret A. Weitekamp’s book “Right Stuff, Wrong Sex: America’s First Women in Space Program.”

The story follows the confrontation between two of aviation’s female titans, Jackie Cochran and Jerrie Cobb, in a battle to send the first woman into space.

“This story is a compelling portrait of two incredibly driven women not only set against the creation and ultimate dismantling of the secret Woman in Space program, but within the context of the Cold War and the rise of the women’s movement in America” said Mednick.
