A Misty Copeland movie might be happening

Misty Copeland

The ballerina-against-all-odds might be getting her own movie.

Much-admired Misty Copeland is an of-the-moment star in the ballet world, but she was once rejected from many ballet academies for not fitting the ballet-body ideal.

Copeland became the first African American soloist for the American Ballet Theatre in more than 20 years (and this season, a judge on So You Think You Can Dance)—and Hollywood is paying attention. Her inspiring true story might be getting made into a movie, according to Deadline.

The film would be based on Copeland’s memoir, Life In Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina, which tells the story of the many challenges she’s overcome. (If you’ve seen her new Under Armour commercial where she reads an unnecessarily brutal rejection letter from a ballet academy, you’ve had a taste for what she’s had to deal with.)

We’re thinking this is going to be like Center Stage, but way better. —Molly Gallagher
