Bradley Cooper may be a member of The A-Team now, but he could be Double-A or Triple-A in the baseball flick Disney is developing. According to The Hollywood Reporter, he’s attached to star in an untitled dramedy about an injured big league player who gets sent back to the minors — “where the only place he can find lodging is in a senior citizens’ home.”

“There,” the trade continues, “he meets an old baseball guru who helps lead him back.”

Let’s break this down. Immediately, I had two regrets: Paul Newman isn’t around to play the senior citizen (he would’ve been great), and Kevin Costner isn’t old enough. But moving beyond those disappointments, this concept — now being developed by Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps scribe Allan Loeb — definitely has promise. The minor leagues are full of ridiculous fodder (see: Bull Durham), and we love seeing men from two different generations talk America’s favorite pastime (see: Field of Dreams). Plus, the ladies in that senior citizens’ home are gonna love Cooper, and he looks really good scruffy (you know we’re gonna have the too-down-and-out-to-even-shave montage).

Are you digging this as much as I am? Don’t even try to pretend you don’t enjoy a good sports film from the Mouse House: The Rookie, Remember the Titans, Invincible, Miracle, Cool Runnings, The Mighty Ducks. Who would you like to see cast as Cooper’s mentor in the home? Robert Redford seems a natural fit. But I also have a dream of Clint Eastwood playing gruff in a Disney film…
