Legendary Topper Thomas Tull Tapped as Baseball Hall of Fame Director

Move follows success of '42'

Legendary Entertainment Chairman and CEO Thomas Tull has been elected to the board of directors for the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.

The move comes eight months after Warner Bros. released Legendary’s “42,” the Jackie Robinson biopic about the Hall of Fame baseball player. “42” grossed $94 million in the U.S.

Tull becomes the 16th member of the board for the non-profit educational institution.

Jane Forbes Clark, chairman of the Hall of Fame, said of Tull: “He has such a great passion for baseball history and for the Museum, and it has continued to grow since his childhood in central New York. As the Founder, Chairman and CEO of Legendary Entertainment, he has revolutionized the movie industry with the same fervor that drives his commitment to the preservation of baseball history. His entrepreneurial acumen and innovative business strategies will be a tremendous asset to the Museum’s Board and leadership team.”

Legendary has also announced plans to produce “Lombardi,” a biopic of Green Bay Packer coach Vince Lombardi with JC Chandor set to write. Tull is also part of the Pittsburgh Steelers ownership group and holds a board seat.
