Warner Bros. Pictures will distribute the documentary with plans to release it in the coming year.
A year ago Saturday, the City of San Francisco transformed into Gotham City to give 5-year-old leukemia patient Miles Scott a chance to fulfill his dream of fighting crime alongside Batman. A year later, San Francisco is back to normal and Miles is doing better than ever.
A discussion on Miles Scott’s documentary was featured at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con…
Scott, a cancer survivor, enthralled millions last November when the Make-A-Wish Foundation transformed San Francisco for his daylong escapade as the caped crusader. Now, filmmakers are hoping his internet celebrity can help fund a documentary preserves the feel-good moment for posterity.
The San Francisco Giants home opener at AT&T Park featured a special guest to throw out the ceremonial first pitch, the city’s hero, Batkid.
The family of Miles Scott has said the 5-year-old leukemia survivor was scheduled for a sequel, making a surprise appearance with Spiderman star Andrew Garfield, but the scene was cut, according to the International Business Times.
Philanthropists John and Marcia Goldman are picking up the city’s $105,000 tab for allowing Miles Scott to play the role of ‘Batkid’ in an elaborate, Make-A-Wish fantasy last year.
After winning hearts in San Francisco and beyond last month, “Batkid” is returning to the city this weekend for a Make-A-Wish fundraiser with the Police Department.
Much of the bill came from the big San Francisco Civic Center finale, where 5-year-old Miles Scott was given a key to the city.
The Batkid t-shirts that were created to benefit Make-a-Wish Foundation’s efforts to turn San Francisco into Gotham last week sold so quickly that thousands more have since been ordered.
