Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures’ Jackie Robinson biopic 42 will be released April 12, 2013, three days before the 66th anniversary of the Brooklyn Dodgers Hall of Famer becoming the first black player in Major League Baseball. Warner Bros made the announcement today. Harrison Ford stars as Dodgers GM Branch Rickey and Chadwick Boseman plays Robinson. Brian Helgeland is directing from his own script. Shooting is set to begin next month in Alabama, Georgia and Chattanooga, Tenn., where that city’s Engel Stadium will stand in for the Dodgers’ former New York home Ebbets Field. Christopher Meloni and T.R. Knight co-star.
