Are You Ready for Nails: The Movie?

Lenny Dykstra biopic reportedly in the works.

Via Crossing Broad, Variety reports that a Lenny Dykstra biopic may soon be made.

John Lee Hancock is re-teaming with The Blind Side producer Gil Netter to direct an untitled movie about former Major League Baseball star Lenny Dykstra. … Dykstra pleaded guilty in 2012 to bankruptcy fraud, concealment of assets and money laundering and was sentenced to six months in prison, 500 hours of community service, and was ordered to pay $200,000 in restitution. Dykstra said in an interview after he was released from prison last summer that Netter had acquired his movie rights — and suggested that either Matt Damon or Mark Wahlberg portray him in the film.

We’d watch a good comedy about the entire 1993 Phillies team, actually.
