I read a script years ago for a proposed Spike Lee Robinson film that was to star Denzel. It was good and somehow never got off the ground.
Then Redford wanted to make one and nothing happened.
Now, a Robinson film is here and Harrison Ford is in it and it is directed by the man who brought up Stealth and Payback
How did that happen? Not sure but it looks good anyway
Harrison Ford as Branch Rickey. LOL.
Jackie Robinson would never have flipped his bat like that and why must hip hop be tied into it, just like with the Red Tails trailer, it’s bullshit pandering.
That said, it’s a film I wouldn’t mind seeing
It’s Brooklyn, man, you know Jay-Z’s going to get in on that.
If he’s good enough for the Great Gatsby, he’s good enough for Jackie Robinson.
More looking forward to the public hissy fit Spike Lee throws when this comes out than the movie itself.
“Jackie Robinson would never have flipped his bat like that "
I don’t ever recall him sliding head first either.
Lee should have got it
He had a epic type script. He had Denzel. He is a baseball nut
and it likely would have much better than this version
