O.J. Simpson struggles documented
Football great O.J. Simpson will not be remembered for his skills on the football field, but rather for his notoriety and scandals. The New York Daily News is now reporting Simpson promoter Norman Pardo has been working on a 90-minute film on the football legend, in an attempt to get him back in the spotlight at any cost.
The film, reportedly called "The Unpromotable," chronicles Simpson from 2001 to 2008 and how he was working to revamp his greatly tarnished image. Simpson's persona was destroyed following the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown in 1994. He was the main suspect in the double murder, though was ultimately acquitted. Although he was cleared, many around the nation still believed he was guilty of the crimes.
Pardo, who received death threats when he took on Simpson as a client, wanted to make the film to show that Simpson has still got it and that he's still the charismatic man many people once loved. The documentary-style movie showcases Simpson hitting on women and a look into his free time, Pardo admits it doesn't show him in the best light. However, it's his job to get him press, not press of a specific kind.
"It's O.J. Simpson gone wild. It's him with girls all over him in clubs, Pardo told the news source. "It doesn't show him in a great light but in both lights. I do show what it's like to work with him."
It's unclear as to whether or not Simpson is happy about the controversial film coming out, as his is currently serving a 33-year sentence in Nevada. BET reports Simpson is doing time after he was found guilty of kidnapping, robbery and using a deadly weapon in 2008.
People looking to catch an inside glimpse into the life of Simpson before he wound up in jail will have to wait until after 2012. Pardo told The New York Times Simpson doesn't want the movie released until after the 2012 presidential election.
Simpson was able to get off on murder back in 1994 due to his impressive legal team, which included the late Robert Kardashian, father of the Kardashian sisters. It's been reported the trial sparked a rift between Kardashian and then-wife Kris, who was best friends with Nicole Simpson. The Urban Daily is now reporting Khloe Kardashian is trying to meet up with Simpson in jail to have some questions answered that have plagued her family for years.
