The girl with an arm that could rival those of most adults is now getting the biopic treatment courtesy of Disney. Little Leaguer Mo’ne Davis’ life will be coming to the small screen soon.
According to the Associated Press, Mo’ne’s life will be the subject of a Disney Channel movie. Throw Like Mo is currently in development and will tell the story of the 13-year-old’s rise to fame. Last year Mo’ne became the first girl to pitch a shutout in the Little League World Series while playing for Philadelphia’s Taney Dragons. Since then, she’s been making waves in a number of fields, from doing commercials to writing a memoir and also designing sneakers.
Although Mo’ne isn’t starring in the movie, she will be on board as a consultant. The cast and air date have not been named yet.
“A year ago, I never would have thought that Disney Channel would make a movie about me,” Mo’ne said, according to Variety. "I can’t wait to get started, and I hope it will encourage other viewers to believe that dreams really do come true.”
