Anderson Ready for Some "Football"

Paul W.S. Anderson is developing "Man With a Football" for Columbia, Variety reports. The story involves terrorists stealing the "football," which is the President's briefcase that contains the equipment to initiate a nuclear strike. Anderson directed "Alien Vs. Predator," "Resident Evil," and "Resident Evil: Apocalypse."

Good plot idea. Now all we need is a good script and a decent cast. The title 'Man with a Football' is pretty lame though.

what a lame plot....sounds like "Under Siege 2"....

and btw, when will RT ever get things right? Resident Evil 2 was NOT directed by PWS Andersson (Thank God!)

I thought Under Siege 2 took place on a train?

yes it did...but the plot was basically the same....

oh yes, the nuclear weapon was in a briefcase instead of a football...

so guess it would be "Man with a briefcase on a train!"

zooter I think your confused. The "football" IS a briefcase. It's a code name. The president doesn't carry around a pigskin, well maybe he does, but it would be unrelated to the "football" briefcase that holds the nuclear launch equipment.
