Julia Roberts will produce a movie about Batkid, the 5-year-old leukemia patient who was granted his wish to become a superhero for a day. On a bright November day, 25,000 volunteers answered the Make A Wish Foundation's call and turned San Francisco into Gotham City, cheering him on along the way.
