R.A. Dickey's Life Will Be Made into a Movie

Heading to the big screen.

Blue Jays knuckleballer R.A. Dickey's story, detailing his path to stardom in the Majors, is headed to the big screen. The film will be based on his 2012 memoir, Whenever I Wind Up.

Deadline.com has the details:

Actors Ben McKenzie and Logan Marshall-Green have joined forces to launch the shingle A Thing Or Two Productions. They come to the table in a big way. Tom Rothman's TriStar Pictures has made a deal on a baseball memoir which the duo will produce with Michael De Luca. TriStar has optioned Wherever I Wind Up, the memoir by pitcher R.A. Dickey about his unusual life journey. Buzz Bissinger has been set to write the script. It becomes another eclectic project for Rothman's upstart division.

Very cool. Dickey is an incredible person and pitcher, and the movement on his knuckler is insane.
