Walk On: According to Variety, songbird-turned-permanent newlywed Jessica Simpson is slated to make her feature bow in Walk On, an ensemble baseball biopic to be directed by Walter Hill.Written by Richard Julian.

Walk On is based on the true story of the Texas Rangers franchise, which was nearly bankrupt in 1973. Their savior was David Clyde, an 18-year-old high school senior recruited by the Rangers even before he could attend his prom. Clyde's Cinderella story took a turn for the worse, however, when the mercurial Billy Martin replaced coach Whitey Herzog.
