The rumors appear to be true.

20th Century Fox is closing a deal to acquiring the rights to ESPN: Those Guys Have All The Fun, according to Deadline.com:

“The studio will develop a feature about the formation of the 24-hour sports network. The pic will be produced by Michael De Luca, Trigger Street’s Dana Brunetti and Julie Yorn. The book by James Andrew Miller and Tom Shales follows a format similar to Live From New York, the oral history they wrote about Saturday Night Live.”

Let the casting speculation begin.
