Kurt Warner's life could be headed for the silver screen

With a lid finally being placed on quarterback Kurt Warner’s NFL career, the likely Hall of Famer could see his life story turned into a film.

Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch recently reported that Warner has been approached by a producer regarding the possibility.

And it makes sense.  The success of The Blind Side will cause similar real-life football stories to receive consideration for silver-screen treatment, and Warner’s rags-to-riches-to-rags-to-riches roller-coaster ride would fit nicely with the formula that we often see in such efforts.

Miklasz also made some partially tongue-in-cheek predictions as to possible casting decisions, so allow us to do the same.

Pre-2000 Warner would be played by Ashton Kutcher, if he’s willing to gain like 40 pounds.  Late-career Warner would be played by Jack Nicholson.

Late-career Brenda Warner would be played by Kate Hudson.  Pre-2000 Brenda Warner would be played by Meryl Streep.

Dick Vermeil would play himself, given his Oscar-level ability to cry on cue.  Marty Feldman would play Mike Martz.

Oh, wait.  Marty Feldman is dead.  Well, they could just use some old footage from Young Frankenstein.

    I was thinking pre-2000 Brenda Warner could be played by Edward Norton.

    I thought you said you wouldn’t be posting April Fools Jokes.

    I don’t know if that is a dig on Kate Hudson or Brenda Warner. lol

    Pre-2000 Brenda Warner would definitely be played by Ma’am from Webster.

    Florio, now that your tongue is in cheek: bite down hard because you are not funny.

  6. imabigdog says: Mar 30, 2010 9:01 AM

    Pre-2000 Brenda Warner – Cloris Leachman

  7. chickenragnar says: Mar 30, 2010 9:03 AM

    Spare me. This will never get off the ground.
    Next thing you know, they will make a movie about a bartender that made a pro team for 3 years.

    Florio,
    I have been reading your nonsense articles for quite some time. This is one of the funniest things you have ever written.
    Cheers

    Mike Florio could do a cameo as a fellow aging grocery stocker/owner of an upstart football website who questions Warner’s commitment and motivations. HAHAHA!

  10. Outlaw Jersey Whales says: Mar 30, 2010 9:09 AM

    Why not get Errol Flynn to play him? Even though he’s been dead 50 years he’s still more animated and interesting.
    This has straight-to-video scribbled all over it. If it’s put into general release, it’ll be the biggest bomb since Nagasaki.

  11. BBB82 says: Mar 30, 2010 9:10 AM

    I would pay to see Jack Nicholson play Kurt Warner. Definitely.

    agreed.

  13. Krow says: Mar 30, 2010 9:16 AM

    Who will play Jesus? I think Tim Tebow should at least get to read for that part.

  14. nyfan14 says: Mar 30, 2010 9:18 AM

    To call you retarded would be giving those with legitimate mental restrictions a bad name. You’re just plain pathetic.

  15. SaintsBucsPanthersSUKK says: Mar 30, 2010 9:22 AM

    Pre-2000 Kurt Warner: Wesley Snipes.
    Late career Kurt Warner: Garrett Morris.
    Brenda Warner Pre-2000 & late career: Olivia D’Abo, the only good thing about The Wonder Years and great in Conan the Destroyer.

  16. Pack_Attack says: Mar 30, 2010 9:23 AM

    Pink could play his wife in those early years.

  17. toothpick says: Mar 30, 2010 9:26 AM

    Florio can be played by Gilbert Gottfried

  18. Ben Rapistburger says: Mar 30, 2010 9:28 AM

    Pre 2000 Brenda Warner will be played by Zuul from Ghostbusters.

  19. buckeyes3413 says: Mar 30, 2010 9:28 AM

    The anti-Warner football writer (Florio) could be played by Kevin Spacey…complete with the scene where he is lifting weights in the garage naked.

  20. 123456789 says: Mar 30, 2010 9:29 AM

    Warner is nothing more than an overrated Christian, sissy-@$$, Bible thumper that thinks “GOD” has something to do with anything.
    Florio knows I’m the best thing going on this site. I bring em in, Mike…and, you know it. Ban me. I dare you.

  21. The Oven says: Mar 30, 2010 9:32 AM

    The guy who plays Jack on LOST looks just like him.

  22. medic406 says: Mar 30, 2010 9:34 AM

    Kurt Warner would only agree to this if it was done with taste and to his standards involving Christians (not that there is anything wrong with that). With that being said, Brenda will be played by Kirk Cameron.

  23. NewEnglandKnuckles83 says: Mar 30, 2010 9:35 AM

    PRE-2000 Brenda Warner = Guy Fieri

  24. DonTerrelli says: Mar 30, 2010 9:36 AM

    Chris Rock and Queen Latifa HAVE to play the voices of something in this movie. Maybe Warner’s subconcious

    I can’t believe no one has said the early brenda could be played by Susan ” stop the insanity ” Powter.

  27. carlin53 says: Mar 30, 2010 9:40 AM

    Do we really need to hear this story again? We all know about it as it was shoved into our faces 24/7 when he was with the Rams. Lets not give him another forum to tell everyone how to think re: religion. this guy is ten times worse than Tim Tebow when it comes to wearing his religion on his sleeve. Take your annoying wife and go away already!

  28. 123456789 says: Mar 30, 2010 9:40 AM

    Ok guys. I’ll let you all off the hook. I’m not going to post like this anymore. I’m really Chapnasty using another username. I’m a Cowboys fan and just posed as this Steeler-loving lunatic to make the Steelers fan base look even worse than they do already.
    You have to admit, I had you all going. Joke’s on you. Ha. So, now, I will go back to posting as Chapnasty again.

    Don’t quit your day job Florio. Oh wait, you already did that.

  32. WASABUC says: Mar 30, 2010 9:49 AM

  33. KnuckleBucket says: Mar 30, 2010 9:50 AM

    I’d watch the movie just to see him lose to the Pats in 01 again.

    Pre-2000 Brenda Warner would be played by Meryl Streep.

    Glenn Close anyone?

  35. jersey73 says: Mar 30, 2010 10:03 AM

    Brenda Warner should be played by Anne Heche.

  36. It puts the lotion on the skin says: Mar 30, 2010 10:05 AM

    I think pre-2000 Brenda Warner should be played by Clint Eastwood, then I agree with the Kate Hudson approach….

  37. SATAN567 says: Mar 30, 2010 10:11 AM

    Can Betty White be included in this somewhere? She’s HOT.

  38. RaiderJustWinBaby says: Mar 30, 2010 10:13 AM

    I’m thinkin Ricky Martin would play a helluva Kurt Warner and they should get Ellen Degeneres or Melissa Etheridge to play his wife… Regis Philbin for Dick Vermeil and I would give the fat kid from “SuperBad” the nod to play Mike Martz…. GO RAIDERS GET MCNABBY JUST WIN BABY – Submitted by a 6’5” 220pnd Norwegian Northern Californian YADIDIMEEEEAN

  39. burntorangehorn says: Mar 30, 2010 10:16 AM

    They could make this movie a lot like The Rookie with Dennis Quaid, but the better chance of box-office success would involve making it as stupid and ridiculous as possible and then slapping Tyler Perry’s name at the front of the title.

  40. red13 says: Mar 30, 2010 10:19 AM

    Scott Baio (Chachi) has to play Kurt and Joyce Meyer (televangelist – look her up) could play Brenda.

  41. AllThat says: Mar 30, 2010 10:20 AM

    Who will play his scrambled brain?

  42. FAS says: Mar 30, 2010 10:20 AM

    I small an after-school special at best.

    I’m sure they it would do fine. It’s a nice story and most women would drag their SOs to it.
    Sure, we’d rather watch something like The Hangover but there are other people out there that actually like a nice storyline every now and then.

    I was coming in here to make a Kirk Cameron joke.
    Now I won’t even bother. Well done sir. Weeeeelllll done.

  45. Citizen Strange says: Mar 30, 2010 10:34 AM

    Pete Wentz would play Matt Leinart.

  46. Dennis says: Mar 30, 2010 10:50 AM

    I’m sorry to make it serious here, but how does Billy Bob Thornton NOT play Kurt Warner?

  47. CanadianVikingFan says: Mar 30, 2010 10:51 AM

    Morgan Freeman will narrorate.

  48. FinFan says: Mar 30, 2010 11:48 AM

    Billy Bob, or Dennis Quaid.
    Meg Ryan or Marg Helgenberger

  49. Kevin from Philly says: Mar 30, 2010 2:43 PM

    Kate Hudson? Are you sure you didn’t mean Rock Hudson?
