Legend Bill Murray In Talks To Play Joe Maddon In Chicago Cubs World Series Movie

Bill Murray is the perfect candidate to play Joe Maddon.

Actor Bill Murray is a Chicago Cubs fan — you might have heard.

As a result of him being a huge Cubs fan, and a Hollywood legend, it only makes sense for him to play in a Cubs World Series movie as, let’s say, Cubs manager Joe Maddon.

Believe it or not, that dream scenario might actually come true.

Take it away, Deadline:

The movie about the Chicago Cubs World Series win is moving forward. Shane Abbess, an Australian director who is a major baseball fan, has been signed to direct Teammate, the movie about the Chicago Cubs winning its first World Series since 1908. Die-hard Cubbie fan Bill Murray has been in talks to join the team as manager Joe Maddon but it’s not clear yet whether that will happen.

Stay tuned, folks.
