Joshua director hitting the gridiron
07.03.07 by REELZ
While promoting his new flick Joshua, director George Ratliff discussed plans for his next project:
"David Gilbert and I wrote an adaptation of Don Delillo's second novel, End Zone. It's a wonderful football satire -- it's kind of like MASH on the football field. ATO Pictures are on board to produce it."
Ratliff describes it as "kinda in the vein" of sports comedy classics Slap Shot and North Dallas Forty. A decent original comedy would be a welcome addition to a football flick genre that's been dominated in recent years by melancholy fare like We Are Marshall and Friday Night Lights. Football fans could use something to laugh about on those days when the Oakland Raiders aren't playing.
