Russell Brand signs on to do a soccer movie
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Speaking of actors that I can’t understand why they’re famous, Russell Brand has signed on to do another film, this time a sports comedy that doesn’t have a title yet. In the film, Brand will play a soccer superstar that gets arrested in Texas and the judge orders him to train and coach a local, struggling high school soccer team.
I’m all for sports comedies, but I don’t see them doing anything that we haven’t seen a thousand times before. I’m guessing Brand’s character will hate the team, take his first chance to leave, then realize he loves the team, and then return to lead them to a victory of some sort. And I’m in no way convinced that Brand is a movie star.
