A crowdfunded documentary Batkid Begins will premiere at the Slamdance festival in Park City, Utah, this weekend, but a remake is now in the works with Julia Robers attached to both star in and produce the movie.
The Batkid Begins documentary director Dana Nachman will serve as an executive producer, and she had this to say about the news that Roberts will tell the story of Batkid in a dramatisation of her real-life film.
“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.”
There’s no mention of even a script at this point, so things are still clearly in the very early stages of production. To learn more about this story, you can check out the trailer for the documentary below.
