Ridley Scott to direct drama based on sports concussions

November 8th, 2013 by bash Comments


Ridley Scott is set to make a film about the debilitating effects of sports concussions on pro-football players.

According to Deadline, the English director will commence work on the project once he finishes production on biblical epic Exodus.

Deadline reports that Scott “wants to create a drama focusing on the debilitating effects that concussions are having on our sports heroes, and the role that league owners play in allowing it to happen”.

The plot would be a morality tale focusing on the occurrence of these injuries and the blind eyes turned by those in charge, from the field level to the press box.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
