Danny Trejo & An Inspirational True Story

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Trade News | April 6, 2010 |

As for Paul Millsap's story? Here's the way Cinema Blend describes it:

Trejo and his financing partner Gil Medina are making Ambition, a basketball movie about NBA'er Paul Millsap and his uncle and agent DeAngelo Simmons. Millsap is a 25 year old forward for the Utah Jazz. Ambition will detail his relationship with Simmons after Millsap's family moved in with their uncle. Simmons helped raise Millsap, taught him basketball and eventually became his agent and representative.

Although it seems a little premature to make an inspirational movie about a basketball player who's only played three seasons, The Blind Side managed to get greenlit, filmed and released before Michael Oher played a down in the NFL, so it's got that going for it.

Sandra Bullock is in talks to play Millsap's uncle, but is reportedly unhappy about the prosthesis and black face.
