She’s making one of the most inspiring real life stories into a film!
Julia Roberts has signed the dotted line to turn the documentary based on Batkid aka Miles Scott called Batkid Begins into a feature film, and Julia would be the one to star in it!
The 5 year old child with leukemia captured the world’s heart when he became Batkid and fought crime in one special event in San Francisco a while ago, and now his story will be playing in movie theaters every day one day!
The documentary premieres today at Slamdance Film Festival, and the director Dana Nachman is SO happy that Julia Roberts will be the one in charge with producing and acting in the film based off her own movie!
Here’s what the documentary director said:
“It’s thrilling to me that Ms. Roberts and her team watched our film and were so moved by it that they want to dedicate their time and creative capital to make sure the widest audience possible will know and love Miles’ story and the spirit of this intimate special event that went global, as much as we do.”
We think it’s impossible NOT to love this story!
Seriously, what else brings people together the way that Batkid does?!
Julia Roberts seems to have picked herself one wonderful project — hopefully the real Batkid makes an appearance in this movie based on his life!
