TRAILER: Jackie Robinson Story Brought to Life with Chadwick Boseman and Harrison Ford in '42'
Friday, September 21, 2012
While Robinson played himself in the 1950 film The Jackie Robinson Story, 2013 will bring a new film about Robinson's life to theaters. 42, directed by Brian Helgeland, is set for release on April 12, 2013. Chadwick Boseman will play Robinson, while Harrison Ford will portray Branch Rickey, the man responsible for signing Robinson to the Brooklyn Dodgers. Based on the newly released trailer for 42, Ford is going for slight Richard Nixon vibe with the voice he's using for Rickey.
