A Malcolm Movie?
Through the years, we've seen plenty of inspirational sports movies that tell the improbable stories of athletes that defied the odds to get themselves on the grand stage of their respective games.
It appears that the next feature film to depict one of those rise to fame stories might be centered on New England Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Daniel Levin of Narrative Capital has purchased the rights to Butler's story and has a biopic entitled "The Secondary" already in mind.
Butler, of course, has built up quite a story already though his brief career with the Pats.
After being signed as an undrafted rookie out of West Alabama, where he had worked at a Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, the undersized corner found a way to stick on the 2014 team's roster throughout the season.
From there, he obviously made one of the all-time great Super Bowl plays, when he picked off Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson at the goal line to clinch the Pats' Super Bowl XLIX. He has since become the team's top corner and has put himself in position to get paid a hefty contract when he hits free agency.
That already sounds like a good story. Lets see what Levin and the Narrative Capital team can put together over the next couple of years to tell it in a way that honors Butler's hard work and perseverance.
