The 2016 Chicago Cubs will be hitting the big screen

Chicago Cubs have clinched the National League Central title, and they are on their way to the playoffs for a second year in a row. However, their 2016 World Series win will soon be played out again — on the big screen. 

According to Deadline, Australian director Shane Abbess has been signed to direct the movie Teammate. The film is based on the Chicago Cubs first World Series win since 1908. The film will be heavily based upon retired catcher David Ross and Don Yaeger’s book, Teammate: My Journey in Baseball and a World Series for the Ages. There is no release date yet for the film.
