It’s not a secret that Giannis Antetokounmpo has one of the greatest feelgood stories of all time. He went from selling scraps on the streets of Greece and sharing a pair of sneakers with all his brothers to signing one of the largest contracts in major sports history, winning a couple of MVP awards, and a Defensive Player of the Year award.

You just can’t make this kind of movie story up. That’s why Walt Disney Pictures wants to bring Giannis’ journey to the Big Screen, and it seems like they’ve finally found the right man to portray The Greek Freak.
