The Longshots Trailer
Its no secret that former Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst has had lofty ambitions of directing Hollywood features. He was long-ago attached to direct LORDS OF DOGTOWN, and already had several music video credits racked up, but when I imagined what a Fred Durst movie would look and feel like (which I did on a nightly basis), inspirational sports story is not what came to mind. But with the release of the trailer for THE LONGSHOTS, thats exactly what this is. The movie stars another former badass softened by Hollywoods allure, Ice Cube, as a former football star who mentors his niece to become the first female to play football in the Pop Warner tournament. The film was written by the scripters who brought us AKEELAH AND THE BEE, and costars Akeelah herself, Keke Palmer. Essentially, this is AKEELAH AND THE PIGSKIN, and Im not quite sure what Fred Durst is doing directing it.
