Kurt Warner‘s rags-to-riches tale is the kind of story even Horatio Alger could never dream up — probably because professional football didn’t exist until seven years before Alger died in 1899 — and now it may get its due on the silver screen. FOX and Temple Hill have acquired the rights to develop a motion picture based on Warner’s life, according to Deadline.com. Part of that package includes the right to use Warner’s autobiography, All Things Possible: My Story Of Faith, Football And The Miracle Season, as source material. “For so long people have told me my life story would make a great movie,” said Warner. “I am humbled and thrilled to have found a team as excited as I am to make that happen.” Warner famously went from working at a grocery story to two-time NFL MVP, with a stop in the Arena Football League in between. A spider bite even cancelled a tryout with the Chicago Bears at one point. “I’ve been chasing Kurt’s story for three years … or, in many ways, ever since I first saw him play in his third game as a Ram,” producer Wyck Godfrey said. “I remember the sportscasters talking about how he had popped on the scene and thinking, that’s a great underdog story. Little did I realize he’d be wearing a Super Bowl ring and holding up the MVP trophy at the end of the season. Marty and I wouldn’t be more thrilled to be working with Kurt and Brenda [Warner, Kurt's wife] to bring their inspirational story to the screen.” Filed under: Entertainment, Headlines, NFL, Zach Stoloff
