True Blood’s Jim Parrack to Pen NFL Movie

December 7, 2011 by  

Hoyt Fortenberry and James Franco to Team Up:

Jim Parrack as Hoyt FortenberryJim Parrack, who plays the lovable teddy-bear like Hoyt Fortenberry on HBO’s True Blood, tweeted that he is writing a biopic of the great NFL quarterback Joe Namath. James Franco, a good friend of Parrack’s, will be behind the camera, directing the upcoming 3D film next summer.

Parrack’s Tweet:

“Greatest First Album ever!! Revisiting Reasonable Doubt while I write the Joe Namath script.”

Parrack wrote and directed his first film entitled Post, which he also stars in, along with his wife, Ciera. We hope there is more screenwriting and directing in his future! Tell us Truebies, what do you think about Parrack’s embarking out into new territory? Any plans to see the movie?
