Maxim reports the life of Aaron Hernandez is coming to the big screen.
Less than a year after the convicted murderer and former New England Patriots tight end hanged himself in a Massachusetts jail cell, The Mark Gordon Co. has picked up the rights to tell Hernandez’s story on film.
The movie is set up as a adaptation of a forthcoming book from renowned crime writer James Patterson, whose book on Hernandez is out next week.
Patterson has sold over 365 million books and currently holds the Guinness World Record for the most #1 New York Times bestsellers.
The movie will provide a rich in-depth investigation that gives audiences a front row seat to Hernandez’s rise to fame and his downward spiral that followed.
It will feature first-person accounts and untold stories from Bristol to college in Gainesville Florida to playing for the New England Patriots.
Past film credits for the production company include Molly’s Game, Steve Jobs, Murder on the Orient Express, and Saving Private Ryan.
“The real, shocking events that led to Aaron Hernandez’s harrowing fall from NFL stardom gripped America’s attention and imprinted itself on today’s cultural zeitgeist,” producer Mark Gordon said in a statement.
“James is unmatched in his storytelling and reporting talents, and he chronicles this story with incredible insight and nuance. There is no other person with whom to collaborate to bring this timely film to life.”
