ABC7 - A prequel to "The Sandlot" is in the works, according to a report from Variety.

20th Century Fox is in the early stages of developing a movie that would take place before the classic baseball comedy.

David Mickey Evans, the original director and writer of the 1993 film, is working on the project, the report said.

The film's 25th anniversary was celebrated this year.

It's been two and a half decades since Scotty, Benny the Jet, Ham, Squints and their baseball-loving buddies faced off with The Beast.
