Batkid was the kind of viral phenomenon that manages to take off with loads of attention and do a little good in the process. The story of Miles Scott’s Make-A-Wish dream come true captivated readers and inspired a documentary surrounding his unprecedented day “saving” the city of San Francisco. Now that documentary is about to become a feature film thanks to Julia Roberts.
Roberts will produce alongside partners Lisa Gillan and Marisa Yeres Gill through their Red Om Films banner. Nachman will serve as executive producer with Josh and Dan Braun of Submarine under Submarine’s new remake label Sub/Version, which is launching at Sundance.
