Disney Pitching First Trailer for Jon Hamm’s ‘Million Dollar Arm’

Baseball title set to open May 16

Disney has released its first trailer for its “Million Dollar Arm” baseball film, five months before its May 16 launch.

“Arm” stars Jon Hamm as real-life sports agent Jeff Bernstein who discovered professional pitchers Rinku Singh and Dinesh Patel through a reality show he staged in India with cricket players. Lake Bell, Alan Arkin, Aasif Mandvi (“The Daily Show”), Suraj Sharma (“Life of Pi”) and Madhur Mittal (“Slumdog Millionaire”) also star.

The trailer has echoes of Tom Cruise’s 1996 hit “Jerry Maguire” about a sports agent seeking a new path. “These kids are my last best shot,” Hamm’s character says at one point.

Mayhem Pictures and Roth Films are producing with shooting in Mumbai, India and Atlanta. “Lars and the Real Girl” helmer Craig Gillespie is directing from a script by Tom McCarthy (“Win Win”).
