Ridley Scott to Direct Movie About Football Concussions

Will produce along with Giannina Facio

Ridley Scott is attached to direct an untitled film that will center on the physical and psychological effects of concussions on football players.

Scott will produce along with Giannina Facio.

The drama will revolve around pro football players who suffer concussions and the increasingly serious long term effects that have been revealed over the past few years. The topic has been one of the most controversial topics involving the NFL lately, with more and more ex-players announcing that their health has been damaged due to concussions.

Several documentaries are in the works, with frequent new revelations about the issue. Hall-of-fame running back Tony Dorsett recently announced he has CTE, chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a degenerative condition many scientists say is caused by head trauma.

Scott is currently out to writers and will shoot the film after he is done shooting the Fox pic “Exodus.”

He is repped by WME. Deadline Hollywood broke the news.
