Nine Yards Entertainment has picked up the rights to Jose Canseco's book Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant 'Roids, Smash Hits and How Baseball Got Big. Canseco will produce the film as well.

Kipp Marcus has been hired to write the screenplay, which details the baseballer's use of performance-enhancing anabolic steroids starting as a player in his 20s with a small-time farm team and ending up as a star with the Oakland Athletics. In the book, Canseco not only details his own personal use of steroids, says Variety, but alleges that he introduced the illegal drug to other baseball's big names, including Mark McGwire.

No production schedule has been set for Juiced.
