Hollywood for Aussie's rags-to-riches story

This is so awesome. Australia's FOX Sports affiliate is reporting that a movie based on Peter Moylan is in the works...

Moylan's journey from 27-year-old pharmaceutical salesman to playing Major League baseball has sparked Hollywood film industry heavies to open negotiations with his California-based agent on a possible movie.

"My agent is working on it," Moylan said. "I've just got to make sure I go back next year and produce the same consistency I managed last season."

A movie based on the down-to-earth Moylan's extraordinary rise to sporting fame would have an uncanny similarity to the 2002 film The Rookie, which starred Dennis Quaid and Rachel Griffiths.
