Will Smith Producing Movie About Michael Jordan's Baseball Career

Will Smith is stepping up to the plate to produce a movie about basketball star Michael Jordan's short-lived baseball career.

The Prospect
centers on Jordan's time playing minor league baseball with the Chicago White Sox following his initial retirement from the National Basketball Association (NBA) and his father's murder in 1993.

He ended his baseball stint in 1995 and returned to the NBA and his beloved Chicago Bulls, before hanging up his jersey for good in 1999.

Casting details for the sporting biopic have yet to be released, and it's unclear if Smith will make an appearance in the movie, which has been written by Ben Epstein.
