In case you haven’t heard, there appears to be a film in the works about the most legendary professional golfer to ever walk the earth…
And no, it’s not Tiger Woods. It’s not Jack Nicklaus. Not Arnold Palmer…
We’re talking about the big ones John Daly.
And I mean the two-time major championship winner, belly-flop champion, Hooters connoisseur, part-time country singer, and heavy beer drinker. THE John Daly.
With all the wild stories Daly has collected over his 56 years, I couldn’t think of a better golfer to make a film about.
In addition, famous actor Jonah Hill is said to be playing the role of Daly, which sounds great.
Nothing has actually been confirmed yet, with many saying it was just a hoax. However, John Daly confirmed that they are indeed trying to make a movie and Jonah Hill is the guy.
He told the Golf Channel:
“We think that was some kind of leak, we’ve been working on it for almost two years now. We thought we had it, but there are still a few things we need to sort out.
So I don’t know if that was a leak or if I think it was a leak. So we’re still working on it, but hopefully we’ll get something done soon.”
And when asked if he wanted Hill to play him in the film, he replied:
“He really wants it badly and the way he and I have swung in weight in our lives and no disrespect to him, I love him, love him as an actor and I’m sure I love him that much become a friend once we get this done.
He really wants it and I think he’s going to be great. I need to get him on the driving range and see how far he can get the club back and if he can do that then he’s ready.”
Get ready because when this comes together, it will be LEGENDARY.
