Ridley Scott to Direct Football Concussion Film

No director likes to mix it up more than Ridley Scott, as evidenced by his plan to direct a sports drama about the "dangerous effects of concussions in football." Scott and his producing partner Giannina Facio are currently meeting with potential writers. If you could mathematically calculate a 180-degree difference between films, only then you could accurately describe the distance between a concussion movie and a movie in which Cameron Diaz has sex with a car. Or maybe not! Just because a movie involves traumatic brain injury doesn't mean it can't also be caliente.
