Our Batkid story to be turned into Feature Film by Julia Roberts

Our little Batkid story is about to be turned into Feature Film by Julia Roberts.

I can't believe I just typed that.

Articles on Variety and Hollywood Reporter just now:
This is totally amazing, crazy, nuts, incredible and overwhelmingly epic all at the same time. As Dana (director of Batkid Begins: The Wish Heard Around the World, which we premiere tomorrow, Jan 24, at Slamdance) said...  it's really incredible that Julia Roberts will be taking the story behind the day even wider.

This will help ensure that even more people see the power of good, kindhearted people working together and inspiring humanity to strive for a kinder, gentler and more beautiful world.

For any Hollywood studio casting director reading this: I think I should be played by Zach Braff or Jack Black. ;) Or how about Josh Gad?!
