Toronto Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey is set to have his autobiography “Wherever I Wind Up” turned into a movie, according to Deadline.com.

A Thing or Two Productions, a company headed by actors Benjamin McKenzie and Logan Marshall-Green, has made a deal to turn Dickey’s memoir into a Hollywood film. The script will be written by “Friday Night Lights” author Buzz Bissinger.

The book recounts Dickey’s many hardships including the devastating story of his molestation as an eight-year old boy, his battles with depression and his professional struggles as he bounced around Major League Baseball’s minor league systems for 14 years.
