Batkid Begins!

The story that even touched the cold heart of Ryan Garcia is going from documentary to feature film.

Batkid Begins: The Wish Heard Around The World premièred today at the Slamdance Film festival, but it looks like we’ll be getting another movie telling the story of Miles Scott’s awesome Make-A-Wish Foundation-sponsored day as Batkid from Julia Roberts, who according to Deadline has closed a deal to produce and star in a feature adaptation. On November 15, 2013, 5-year-old leukemia patient Miles Scott got his wish to be the Caped Crusader granted when thousands of volunteers helped turn San Francisco into Gotham City for a day. 

Here’s hoping Julia Roberts isn’t so vain and self-absorbed that she wants to play Batkid himself!
