At this rate, O.J. Simpson may want to stay in prisons — to avoid having to deal with all the potential movies about his life.
The latest is courtesy of author Tom Riccio, involved in the 2007 armed robbery of a memorabilia dealer that sent Simpson to a Nevada prison. Riccio says he’d like to see Denzel Washington play Simpson while Vince Vaughn portrays him.
“My book is currently being turned into a screenplay with a view of it being a TV series on a network or film,” Riccio told the New York Daily News, referring to his 2008 book “Busted!”
“There has been a lot of interest from producers and studios about adapting that story into something with all that has happened in the last couple of years.”
“The success of the Travolta show (“The People vs O.J. Simpson”), proved that anything about O.J. is just captivating viewing — and this story is no different,” Riccio said from his L.A. home. “My story is just as crazy as the other show. A mild confrontation turned into a kidnapping and an armed robbery leading to him being in prison.”
