Misty Copeland may be getting her very own biopic soon …and it’s not going to be on Lifetime!
New Line Cinema is interested in bringing Misty’s life to the big screen, Deadline.com reports. The production company has optioned her story for a film that will be adapted from her memoir, “Life In Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina.”
The American Ballet Theatre soloist had become an inspiration to millions as she fought to live her dream of becoming a professional dancer, despite the odds stacked against her.
Misty began taking lessons at the age of 13 while living in a hotel with mother and siblings. She was such a natural talent that she quickly advanced to dancing en pointe just a few months after first taking classes at her local Boys & Girls Club.
