We all remember the tear-jerking, heart-warming moment that had the media world in aw: The special moment when Miles Teller, a 5-year old boy fighting cancer, got to live out his wildest dreams when the Make-A-Wish Foundation teamed him up to fight alongside his favorite hero Batman as Batkid in San Francisco, California. The story took over social media as a billion Batkid fans posted about the amazing event on social sites like twitter, Instagram, facebook, etc. It even got a shout out from the former Batman himself, Ben Affleck.
We just got word that actresses Julia Roberts will be producing a film under her production company, Red Om Films, about the Batkid, Miles Teller. Not to be confused, there is a documentary about Teller premiering this weekend at the Slamdance Film Festival called “Batkid Begins: The Wish Heard Around the World”. Julia Roberts and her company have bought the rights to remake the story into a scripted film.
We have no word on when we can expect this film to hit the big screen but, we can bet it will definitely be a powerful and tissue-dispensing film of a courageous, young hero. Here is a link to the trailer of the documentary film that will premiere this weekend.
