Derek Jeter may go from baseball star … to film star … as a result of a VERY well-known director says the “sh*tshow” Jeter’s created with the Miami Marlins would make for an ideal Hollywood flick!!!
We obtained Billy Corben (the man behind the 2006 hit “Cocaine Cowboys”) in New York selling his new documentary, “Screwball” — which is all about Alex Rodriguez and the Biogenesis steroid scandal.
And, since his new flick is getting strong opinions on Rotten Tomatoes from high critics … we requested Corben if there are any OTHER sports activities tales he’d think about turning right into a film.
“How about a story about Jeter and the Marlins,” Corben stated … “Talk about a Miami sh*tshow!”
He’s proper … the Marlins have been a DISASTER — and although Jeter’s solely been CEO for a yr, issues in Miami are lookin’ grim.
In 2018, the Marlins positioned lifeless final in MLB for attendance and most consultants are predicting the crew to be horrible on the sector … since they actually haven’t any stars.
Corben says the state of affairs with the Marlins is the stuff nice films are manufactured from — so it may simply be a matter of time earlier than Jeter follows A-Rod to the massive display screen.
As for “Screwball,” Corben says he thinks Alex will really benefit from the flick as a result of he thinks the man has a humorousness in regards to the state of affairs.
Oh, and in the event you’re questioning why Corben used kids to play the primary characters within the story … his rationalization is fairly humorous too.
