But interest in the 2010 World Cub convinced producers to switch sports.
And Butler, who is from Scotland, may make a more convincing soccer coach than baseball coach.
Robbie Fox ("So I Married an Axe Murderer") wrote the script. Gabriele Muccino is directing.
Zeta-Jones is repped by WME.
Greer is repped by CAA.
