The story of the late troubled NFL player, Aaron Hernandez, is coming to the screen.
According to reports, The Mark Gordon Company got the film right’s to the forthcoming book, “All-American Murder: The Rise and Fall of Aaron Hernandez, the Superstar Whose Life Ended on Murderer’s Row.”
The book and movie will follow the life of Hernandez, his life sentence and his controversial suicide. Variety reports that the film will include “first-person accounts and untold stories about Hernandez.”
Aaron was arrested in 2013 for the death of semi-pro football player, Odin Lloyd. In 2015, the former New England Patriots star was found guilty of first-degree murder and was sentenced to life in prison.
On April 17, 2016 Hernandez was found dead inside his Massachusetts prison cell. At the time, prison officials said that Hernandez died after hanging himself.
According to a statement released by the Department of Correction, Aaron was discovered unresponsive inside his cell at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley around 3 a.m. The 27-year-old was rushed to UMass Memorial-HealthAlliance Hospital in Leominster, where he was pronounced dead an hour later.
The details surrounding the suicide became an international headline. Officials confirmed that prior to Aaron’s hanging, the athlete cut his right middle finger and drew circles on his feet. The images were consistent with marks on the feet of Jesus Christ when he was nailed to the cross.
Other reports claimed Aaron left a suicide note for his gay lover who was said to be 22-year-old Kyle Kennedy, a convicted robber who received a $50,000 watch from the athlete before his suicide.
Following his tragic death, several theories even surfaced as to why the athlete took his own life. One story suggested Hernandez wanted to get a payout for his young daughter.
