What do you get when you combine Will Smith, producer Ridley Scott, and the writer/director of "Parkland?" One giant pain in Roger Goodell's ass.
That's because the Fresh Prince is in talks to play the lead, Dr. Bennet Omalu, in "Game Brain" a story based on a 2009 Variety article about the NFL's CTE epidemic and a whistleblower who finally points out the obvious: Bashing your head over and over is bad for your health.
The news of this movie comes in addition to two other projects surrounding the NFL/Concussion problem, and unfortunately unlike Playmakers, it's going to be very hard for the NFL to make this film go away.
