Earlier this month, John Ridley was on the Rich Eisen Show to announce a new film he is producing about Vince Lombardi. It turns out Ridley is a Packers fan which (to me anyway) means that he will treat the film with the respect it deserves. Slated to roll out sometime around Super Bowl 50 (and yes, they are moving to Arabic rather than Roman numerals). The film will focus on a particular slice of Vince Lombardi’s life.
It is exciting to me that an Academy award winner and masterful screenwriter/storyteller, who is also a Wisconsin native, will be handling the execution of this film. Here is the announcement:
While Ridley does not give a lot away, it was enough to know that the great Vince Lombardi’s legend will continue to be immortalized in this particular media. Wouldn’t it be great if the celebration of the greatest coach in NFL history corresponded with a 50th anniversary celebration of yet another Super Bowl by the greatest team in NFL history.
And don’t forget, you can catch the Rich Eisen Show here and on the Audience Channel on DirecTV, 150 Fox Sports Radio stations (as a simulcast) and the NFL Now App.
