ESPN, Robert Redford work on Jackie Robinson flick
Just in time for Jackie Robinson Day, ESPN has announced it is joining with Robert Redford and others to produce a theatrical film about Robinson and Branch Rickey.
Redford will star as Rickey, which presumably will require him to put on a lot of weight and become less handsome.
ESPN said the film has the blessings of Rachel Robinson, Branch Rickey Jr. and MLB.
No word yet on a title or release date.
