David Gordon Green To Direct College Football Project 'Score' Written By & Starring Don Johnson

While David Gordon Green has a plethora of Lost, Unmade & Abandoned Projects, that's only because the filmmaker tends to have a handful of irons in the fire at any one time, hoping one will spark into his next project. He's certainly not one willing to sit idle for too long. With "Joe" dropping in theaters this spring, the director has already lined up the Steven Soderbergh-produced comedy series "Red Oaks" over at Amazon Studios. And it seems the streaming world holds another opportunity for Green, who apparently has another gig in the works.

Joe, David Gordon Green

While David Gordon Green has a plethora of Lost, Unmade & Abandoned Projects, that's only because the filmmaker tends to have a handful of irons in the fire at any one time, hoping one will spark into his next project. He's certainly not one willing to sit idle for too long. With "Joe" dropping in theaters this spring, the director has already lined up the Steven Soderbergh-produced comedy series "Red Oaks" over at Amazon Studios. And it seems the streaming world holds another opportunity for Green, who apparently has another gig in the works.

Speaking with Grantland, Don Johnson reveals he's written something that he'll star in, with Green behind the camera. "I’ve actually written something that David Gordon Green is attached to direct. I’m gonna do it for streaming," Johnson said. "It’s called 'Score' and it’s set in the ’80s, and it’s about the rise of big-time college football. I play this outrageous fucking coach who breaks all the rules and recruits basically criminals and everybody else and shoots the finger [extends middle finger in my direction] to the NCAA."

It's not clear if it's a series or movie, but either way, there are still a few steps to clear before this is a reality. "I wrote it in October and I wanna get it financed completely so I can go to the marketplace without layers and layers of executives and bureaucrats. In my mind if you’re not bringing something to the dance, but you’re taking a big chunk of the cash, I got no room for you," Johnson added.

So we'll see how this pans out, and we're certainly curious to know more. Either way, it looks like Green and Johnson hit it off on the set of "Eastbound & Down"—maybe "Score" will be to Don Johnson what "Joe" was to Nicolas Cage? A highlight reel for the kind of range they don't always get to show off? We shall see.
