Ridley Scott to Direct Film About Deadly Effects of Concussions on Football Players

Posted: November 8th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Ridley Scott to Direct Film About Deadly Effects of Concussions on Football PlayersSubmit Comment
Ridley Scott (Prometheus, The Counselor) already has many big-budget films lined up, but the director has now revealed that he's also working on a new drama focusing on the debilitating effects that concussions are having on football players.

The plan is to tell a story similar to Michael Mann's "The Insider, which took on the tobacco industry's complicity in covering up the addictive and cancer-causing effects of cigarette smoking. Scott is a big fan of sports, including rugby and football, but the focus will be strictly on football.

The director has already started doing research into NFL stars like Junio Seau and Dave Duerson, both of whom committed suicide after suffering from CTE. Both football players left their brains for research in hopes of helping other men suffering from similar from CTE.

At this point, a writer has yet to be hired.

Except, Ridley Scott is no Michael Mann. Hell, he's barely even Ridley Scott anymore.

Think about how silly, messy and postured The Counselor was. Now replace that with a movie about football concussions.

Boooooooorrrriiiinnnnggg...
