Jon Hamm, Bill Paxton, Life Of Pi‘s Suraj Sharma and Asiv Mandvi star in Million Dollar Arm, which is being directed by Craig Gillespie and written by Tom McCarthy. Disney said today it will be released wide May 16, 2014. It is based on the true story of sports agent JB Bernstein (Hamm) and his partner (Mandvi) who are facing shutting down their office until JB gets a brainstorm: Million Dollar Arm, an American Idol-like reality show designed to find the first major league baseball player from cricket-crazy India. They discover Rinku Singh and Dinesh Patel, who eventually became the first Indian pros when they signed with the Pittsburgh Pirates — but not before Bernstein had to teach them as much about American culture and speaking English as he did the rules of baseball. Warner Bros’ Godzilla movie already has been set for the May 16 release date.
