Robert De Niro to Star in Vince Lombardi Biopic

Posted: March 10th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Robert De Niro to Star in Vince Lombardi BiopicSubmit Comment
Robert De Niro is attached to play legendary Green Bay Packers coach Vince Lombardi in a biopic being developed by ESPN Films, Andell Entertainment and the NFL. Titled "Lombardi," the project is being penned by "Forrest Gump" and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" writer Eric Roth.

The film will focus on the years that Lombardi rebuilt the Packers into a gridiron powerhouse, and five-time champions, between 1959-67. ESPN and Andell acquired life rights to Lombardi's story from his estate, as well as the rights to the 1968 book "Instant Replay."

The producers plan to release the film in late January 2012, between the AFC and NFC conference championship games and the Super Bowl.

Lol Trueman. At least he's not Sam Worthington.

This could be a good project for Bobby D. Lombardi is one of the biggest coaching icons in American sports history and rightfully deserves a movie about his life. Better yet, he is one of the most unique personalities in sports, which should allow RD to really tap into his acting talents. The current generation doesn't really know much about Lombardi other than what they see in the record books, so this film could be a good peak into the mind of a genius.

Bobby D + sports film = Oscar nom

Found dead in his mother's apartment...

Must be an eye-opener for VinDandy to read how and where he's going to die.

why all the biopics all the sudden? this one doesn't even seem remotely interesting ...

on March 10th, 2010 at 5:00:29 PM

When Gary Coleman dies (hopefully soon?) they couldn't do a biopic, because nobody can act like a short fat turd ...

COC can... but I agree... he's not acting.

unless playing with your own feces is considered acting these days ... then no. (sorry COC)

My people of worst previews!!! Please tell me if I'm wrong but shouldn't the part of Lambardi be played by Dan Lauria aka The Wonder Years dad? Come on Hollywood, get your sh*t together. There would be no need for make up/weight gain if you went with Dan right?
