HE WORE THE number 42 and he changed baseball forever. Now Brooklyn Dodgers icon Jackie Robinson is set to hit the big screen in a new biopic early next year.
The first trailer for 42: The True Story of an American Legend surfaced this week. Pencilled in for an April 2013 release, it stars Chadwick Boseman as Robinson, the man who struck a blow for civil rights by breaking Major League Baseball’s colour barrier, and Harrison Ford as Dodgers GM Branch Rickey.
If you thought it couldn’t get any better, the trailer is set to Jay-Z’s Brooklyn Go Hard. Roll on April.
