Bill Murray is in talks to star in a movie about the 2016 Chicago Cubs

There's no crying in baseball, but there is ... Bill Murray? The diehard Chicago Cubs fan is reportedly in talks to star as manager Joe Maddon in a film about the team's first World Series win in 108 years, Deadline reports.

Teammate will be directed by Australian director Shane Abbess (don't worry: Deadline writes he is "a major baseball fan") and is based on a book of the same name by retired catcher David Ross and Don Yaeger.

Read the full details of the project at Deadline, and watch Murray sing "Take Me out to the Ballgame" in the voice of Daffy Duck during the 2016 World Series below. Jeva Lange
