Man with the Football

Has signed up for a thriller called Man with the Football, no it's not another movie starring Beckham, but a film about a terrorist who steals the American Presidents Football, the case with which he can initiate a Nuclear response as Martin Sheen did in The Dead Zone.

The Hollywood Reporter says the Columbia Pictures film, which revolves around a group of terrorists who steal the U.S. president's "football" -- the briefcase containing computer and telecommunications equipment that can launch a nuclear strike -- has been floating around the studio system for years.

The project's producer, Neal Moritz, first brought screenwriter John Pogue's script to Morgan Creek Productions in 1994. At one point, Sylvester Stallone was attached to star. Columbia acquired the rights in 2003.

This is a good idea, we'll have to just wait and see what they do with it.
