‘Million Dollar Arm’ Unfortunately Not About A Robotic Arm

Wednesday, February 9 by

Tom McCarthy’s Win Win got a lot of buzz at Sundance, and now he’s working on a new project, writing the script for Million Dollar Arm. Now, I assumed this was a movie in the “Six-Million Dollar Man” mold about a guy with a million-dollar robot arm, perhaps one that could fire lasers. The truth isn’t anywhere near as exciting, though: It’s “based on the story of sports agent J.B. Bernstein who found two professional pitchers through an Indian reality TV show.”

Wait, Indian reality TV show? Perhaps McCarthy could find a way to incorporate the Indian Terminator. Pretty sure that guy’s arm costs more than a million dollars, though. (via SlashFilm)
