'Leap of Faith': LeRoy Butler announces documentary film in development

WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- This has already been a year to remember for former Packers great LeRoy Butler. 

Three months ago, he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. 

The Packers will retire his jersey number in a few days. 

Now, something new. It was announced Wednesday that a feature length documentary about Butler's life is being made. 

The working title is "Leap of Faith - The LeRoy Butler Story," and from the design of the poster, it looks like the movie will follow Butler's rise from poverty and physical challenges to becoming an NFL star. 

The Packers and the producers of the movie plan to reveal more details next week.
