Will Smith to Star in Ridley Scott's NFL Concussion Film

Posted: June 4th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Will Smith to Star in Ridley ScottSubmit Comment
Will Smith kept dropping out of projects that he's been attached to, and now we may know the reason. Variety is reporting that the actor possibly wanted to clear his schedule to star in Ridley Scott's upcoming film, which is based on the GQ article "Game Brain."

The story follows Dr. Bennet Omalu (Smith), the forensic neuropathologist who single-handedly made the first discovery of CTE in a professional football player and brought awareness to the public. CTE is a progressive degenerative disease of the brain found in athletes with a history of repetitive brain trauma, usually resulting from concussions.

The film described as a whistle-blower tale in the vein of "The Insider" humanizing the price paid by professional athletes in impact sports and the political, cultural and corporate interests that fuel the business of professional sports.

Scott won't be directing. Helming duties will be handled by Peter Landesman (Parkland), who also wrote the script.

This will be f*cking boring.

Who cares?! Your kind of "football" is made to have major "concussions". They're paid for that, they know about that beforehand and they're well paid to be "concussioned".

Instead, try playing the real football.

Like Pele, Roy Hodgson, Cantonna, Maradonna, Messi, etc.

And f*ck Ronaldo the most overpaid, arrogant, ignorant prick in history.

So this explains why Scott made Prometheus: brain damage playing football with his brother.

And I love how Alex doesn't explain to the audience the acronym CTE.

Ridley Scott was never under your American training football sh*t!


Thank God for that!

No matter how Prometheus was so f*cked up!

Didn't know he was still getting projects after his last two films bombed. (Or was it three?)
