The Sandlot

20th Century Fox

Heroes get remembered, so as far as movies go, 1993's "The Sandlot" must be one of them. The sports comedy flick is reportedly being developed as a TV series for the new streaming service Disney+.

The film's director and co-writer David Mickey Evans is on board as a writer and executive producer, Variety reports. The new story will be set in 1984 and focus on a new group of children, per the publication's intel. These kids will be the offspring of the original characters -- a group of young baseball players who bonded in the summer of  1962 -- meaning the stories will still be tied together.

Evans opened up about the "Sandlot" series last week, revealing on The Rain Delay podcast that it had gotten a greenlight from a streaming service. He didn't, however, name the service.

"It takes place in 1984 when they're all like 33 years old and they all have children of their own," he said at the time. "And that's all I can tell you."

That's one mystery that's solved now. We'll look forward to getting more information in the coming months.
