Story of NFL's oldest cheerleader to hit the big screen

While attending an NFL football game, Laura Vikmanis decided she wanted to become a Ben-Gals cheerleader. At age 41, she never thought she would be the oldest cheerleader in the league. Now, her inspiring story is headed to the big-screen.

New Line Cinema acquired the rights to the Vikmanis story. Emily Cook and Kathy Greenberg, whose credits include Gnomeo & Juliet and Ratatouille, will write the script, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Mother of two teenagers, Vikmanis is a registered dietitian and fitness fanatic and was almost 40 when she made the brave decision that she wanted to kick up her heels on the Bengals sidelines.

Missing the cut when she first tried out in 2008 made her even more determined to make the team and she trained hard for a year until she finally got selected for the squad the following season. Now she is shaking her bon-bon and her pom-poms with girls almost half her age.

The casting on this one will be interesting. Who do you think should play the part?
