With the debut of the Batkid Begins documentary at the Slamdance Film Festival on Saturday came the news that Julia Roberts is going to star in a feature film adaptation of the young Miles Scott's story.
The Oscar-winner will also be producing the film under her Red Om Film company, and Batkid Begins director Dana Nachman is also attached as executive producer. "It's thrilling to me that Ms. Roberts and her team watched our film and were so moved by it that they want to dedicate their time and creative capital to make sure the widest audience possible will know and love Miles' story and the spirit of this intimate special event that went global, as much as we do," Nachman said in a statement.
Nonfics has called the Batkid documentary "obviously adorable and heartwarming," while Slashfilm says it's "an uplifting and important documentary."
