Ridley Scott Targets Football Concussion Drama

ON

Ridley Scott has lined up another directing project with a currently-untitled tale that examines the long-term effects of concussions among professional football players. Deadline reports that the film will be based largely in fact, taking a big screen look at a major issue currently affecting the NFL.

The next step for Scott is to name a screenwriter, although the process should move forward with some haste. The outlet notes that Scott is potentially planning to make the football injury film his next project after completing Exodus. Now filming, Exodus stars Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul, John Turturro, Sigourney Weaver and Ben Kingsley and is set for a December 12, 2014 release.

Scott is also set to produce the new film alongside Giannina Facio.
