  • Hank Aaron biopic

    With a Jackie Robinson movie already in the works, Hank Aaron looks to be the next star in line for a biopic. Barry Levinson, director of The Natural, Diner, Good Morning Vietnam, & Rain Man, will direct a script written by Adam Mazar. It will be based on Howard Bryant's The Last Hero: The Life Story of Henry Aaron.

    No word on any casting yet.

    The book was wonderful, especially the first half of the book where Bryant provides a wealth of information about Aaron's childhood, how his father handled discrimination against himself and his family. There is a great deal of detail through homer #715, and the details would fit well into a movie.

    We can only hope that Hollywood will do justice to Aaron and his story as told by Bryant.

    A fanatic is someone who can't change his mind and won't change the subject. -- Winston Churchill.

This is a coincidence, and the quote was first added to this signature too far back to remember when).
