For anyone who loves watching old clips of Michael Jordan playing basketball, you're in luck. Get ready for not a 2 or 3 hour documentary film—you're going to get a 10-hour(!) film about the greatest player to ever set foot on the hardwood.

According to the New York Post, the doc will focus on Jordan's life after he returned to the Chicago Bulls in 1995 after a (very) brief retirement. He then helped the team to their second three-peat from 1996 to 1998.

Production of the documentary hasn't yet started. And it won't come cheap: the film has reportedly has a steep $20 million price tag attached.

The NBA and CAA (Creative Artists Agency) are shopping a 10-hour authorized documentary about Jordan. Production has not yet started, but the film will mostly be about His Airness’ comeback in the late ’90s (after his stint playing baseball), when he won three of his six championship rings.

Even though Jordan's fans know a lot about his epic story already, they will almost certainly fiend to get an encore—even one that lasts 600 minutes.
