The Arizona Cardinals’ storybook 2008 almost concluded in a championship.
That team was spearheaded by quarterback Kurt Warner, whose life will be depicted in a movie. Warner, who was bagging groceries before he won a Super Bowl with the St. Louis Rams, has had a great life, and it’s fitting that it will be captured in a movie.
Warner threw three touchdowns in the 2009 NFC Championship and powered the Cardinals to Super Bowl 43, where they lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Warner had a solid postseason and a solid career with the Cardinals, and he finished his career in the desert.
According to deadline.com, 20th Century Fox has acquired the rights to the film.
Warner posted a 96.9 passer rating in 2008 and a 109.2 passer rating in 1999, when the Rams won the Super Bowl. He played 12 seasons in the NFL before retiring in 2010.
