Jim Brown's life story will be hitting the silver screen in the near future.
Needless to say, i'm pretty giddy. If it only serves to remind modern fans that there was once football excellence in Cleveland, I could care less if the rest of the film blows. Even if they skim over his playing years to feature his movie career and personal issues, i've gotta think they'll be spending at least a good 15 minutes on his stellar career with the Browns, which means we'll get to see a big-budget recreation of Paul Brown on the sideline, Warfield catching passes, and of course, Brown plowing over every sucka dumb enough to try to tackle him.
I'm probably most curious to see who's gonna play PB and Modell, and how they'll portray them. I'm hoping it makes Modell look like an ass, but more likely he'll be portrayed as a father figure and pioneer against racism or something dramatic.
It also makes me wonder how they'll handle Brown's domestic abuse conviction. He is said to be directly involved in the movie, so it will be interesting to see.
Is anyone else as jacked about seeing some Browns history on the big screen as I am?
