Legendary Pictures is finally making the long-awaited biobic of Puerto Rican baseball legend, Roberto Clemente. Roberto has been one of the most influential Latino baseball players in the major leagues, opening a lot of doors for the superstar players of today, and the first Latino inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
The film is being executive produced by Giselle Fernadez and Sandra Condito, two powerful Latinas in Hollywood on a mission to get this project off the ground for many years.
The film is based on the critically acclaimed David Maraniss’ book Clemente: The Passion and Grace of Baseball’s Last Hero.
This film is a win for baseball fans all over the world!
