By Playbook Trending

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures are teaming up with director Brian Helgeland for “42,” the story of baseball great Jackie Robinson, slated for release in April 2013.

“42” stars Academy Award nominee Harrison Ford as the innovative Dodger’s general manager Branch Rickey, the MLB executive who signed Robinson to the minors and then helped to bring him up to the show, and Chadwick Boseman (“The Express”) as Robinson, who was the first man to break the color line in the big leagues.
