ComingSoon.net's Edward Douglas reports that in a few weeks, Greg Kinnear will start shooting another sports-related movie in Philadelphia, the Disney film Invincible co-starring Mark Wahlberg.
In this movie he'll be playing Coach Dick Vermeil. "In 1976, Dick Vermeil came to the Philadelphia Eagles from UCLA and was not necessarily embraced by the city. He had a tough arrival there, and they really were in dire straights, so he held open try-outs, which really hadn't been done in the NFL before. He ended up bringing on this bartender who had never played football, even at the college level, named Vince Papale, who turned out to be a sensational player. He played with them for six years, went to the Super Bowl with them, and they kind of became friends. It's a rocky story about that guy."


I wonder if Mark Wahlberg is playing Greg Robinson or maybe Jaws??
