Sony Making Movie About Pirates' Rinku Singh And Dinesh Patel

Yes, really:

Also growing is the duo's legend - Sony Pictures bought the movie rights to their incredible story.

"I talked to the movie writer a couple of weeks ago," Singh said. "He told me he's almost finished writing the movie. The movie is coming next year. We'll see who is playing us."

Singh couldn't recall the name of the "movie writer," but he certainly remembered the name of his favorite actor.

↵

"It's John Rambo," he said.

Singh meant Sylvester Stallone, of course, but give him that. Singh and Patel are both still getting used to life in the fast lane.

"Yeah, yeah, yeah," Singh said, "it's pretty cool."

In case you've forgotten, Singh and Patel won a reality show and became the first Indian players signed to pro contracts when the Bucs inked them in 2008. I'm rooting for them, but I don't know how the movie will turn out - they're still at rookie ball, and while they've pitched pretty well, they're a long way from the majors. It's hard to see right now where this Cinderella story is going to end.
