HOLLYWOOD — The gripping story of the Chicago Cubs finally winning the championship in a thrilling seven-game series after a 108-year slump is eventually going to be on the big screen.
Cubs catcher David Ross and Radar Pictures are planning to adapt Ross’ memoir, Teammate: My Journey in Baseball and a World Series for the Ages, into a major motion picture, according to Entertainment Weekly.
The film, which will just be titled Teammate, is being written by Ram Getz and John Corcoran with Ross and Don Yaeger (co-author of Ross’ memoir) will serve as executive producers alongside Radar’s Lisette Bross.
“It was said all during the 2016 season that if you made a movie about the magical run with all its amazing subplots, no one would believe it,” Ross said, “Guess what? Believe it!”
