Hamilton’s story certainly contains more than enough drama to be a compelling movie, but a biopic of a still-living 31-year-old seems kind of premature, especially considering his recent alcohol-related setbacks and the fact that he may be leaving the Rangers as a free agent in a few months.
According to the report Hamilton and his wife sold the rights to his story and will be executive producers for the movie, which fellow producer Basil Iwanyk described as having “the mythic quality of The Natural, the faith-based angle of The Blind Side, and the romance of Walk the Line.”
No word yet on who would star as Hamilton. Any suggestions?
