Craig Gillespie to Direct Disney’s ‘Million Dollar Arm’
According to sources, Craig Gillespie is in negotiations with Disney to direct their sports flick Million Dollar Man.
The film is based on the true story of sports agent J.B. Bernstein (played by Jon Hamm,) who discovered professional pitchers Rinku Singh and Dinesh Patel through a reality show he produced in India.
Gillespie previously helmed Lars and the Real Girl, as well as Mr. Woodcock and the remake of DreamWorks’ Fright Night. As of this writing, the film does not have an expected release date.
