Wahlberg and Banks to Become "Invincible"

Mark Wahlberg and Elizabeth Banks will co-star in the fact-based Disney sports flick "Invincible," says The Hollywood Reporter. The movie’s about a Philadelphia Eagles fan who accepts an open invitation to try out for the team, and not only makes the cut — but becomes a city-wide sensation in the process.

Based upon the true story of Vince Papale, the Disney production marks the directorial debut of cinematographer Ericson Core.

Ms. Banks will play the lead’s love interest, despite the fact that her character is (gasp) a Giants fan!
