James Mangold In Talks To Direct Joe Namath Biopic
Posted by Joseph Lee on 05.29.2014

According to The Hollywood Reporter, director James Mangold (Walk the Line, The Wolverine) is in talks with Elizabeth Gabler's Fox 2000 to direct a biopic about football quarterback Joe Namath. Mangold would once again be working with Fox after Walk the Line, as well as 3:10 to Yuma writers Michael Brandt and Derek Haas. Andrew Lazar and Mangold's Tree Line Films partner Cathy Konrad would produce.

Namath is a legend in the NFL. He played for the New York Jets in the 1960s and 1970s after playing college football at the University of Alabama for coach Paul "Bear" Bryant. He's known for wearing fur coats on the sidelines (before it got banned). His team won the Super bowl in an upset and he later opened Bachelors III, a bar on New York City's Upper East Side. After he retired, he made guest appearances on TV shows and starred in films. He was also a commentator for ABC's Monday Night Football. He's known for his partying and womanizing, earning the nickname "Broadway Joe". In 2004, he went to rehab after he told ESPN's Suzy Kobler during live coverage of a Jets game: "I want to kiss you. I couldn't care less about the team struggling." He currently lives in Florida.
