Director Craig Gillespie's film is based on the true story of a sports agent who discovered India pitchers Dinesh Patel and Rinku Singh.

JB Bernstein (Hamm) staged the reality TV show in which 40,000 contestants auditioned with their transferrable cricket skills.

It is unclear which pitcher Sharma will play at this point.

Million Dollar Arm will be the actor's first major role since Ang Lee's Oscar-winning Life of Pi.

Shooting will begin in May in Mumbai before moving to Atlanta.
