Gillespie Helms Hamm’s “Million Dollar Arm”

Jon Hamm is attached to star while Craig Gillespie (“Lars and the Real Girl,” “Fright Night”) is in negotiations to direct the sports drama “Million Dollar Arm” at Disney Pictures and Mayhem Pictures says Variety.

The film is based on the true story of how sports agent J.B. Bernstein (Hamm) discovered professional pitchers Rinku Singh and Dinesh Patel through a reality show he staged in India with cricket players.

Tom McCarthy (“Win Win”) penned the script while Mark Ciardi, Gordon Gray, Joe Roth and Palak Patel will produce.
