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.
