According to comingsoon.net, Switzers 1990 autobiography, Bootleggers Boy, is being shepherded to a theater near you by producer Molly Smith (pro: The Blind Side; con: Something Borrowed) and, possibly, the screenwriting team of Patrick Massett and John Zinman (pro: Friday Night Lights; con: Lara Croft: Tomb Raider).
its never too early to think about casting, Chicken-Fried News
nominates Oscar winner Tommy Lee Jones to tackle (get it?) the role of
Switzer. After all, hes good at yelling at people.
Jerry Jones, Switzers boss at the Dallas Cowboys and the ostensible
villain of the piece, Tobin Bell, aka Jigsaw from all seven Saw movies.
For Charles Thompson, the quarterback arrested in 1989 for selling
cocaine to the FBI well, he looks an awful lot like Todd Bridges,
child star of Diffrent Strokes, whos had a past with coke himself. Authenticity!
Finally, for Brian The Boz Bosworth, wed cast Brian The Boz Bosworth. Unless Stone Cold 2: Stone Colder comes along to complicate scheduling, CFN thinks hed be available.
