Davis & Nash Plan More Sports Biopics

John Davis and Bruce Nash are set to develop sports-themed theatrical films for 20th Century Fox reports Variety.

Davis, who produced the upcoming Universal drama “The Express” about gridiron legend Ernie Davis, is considering various famous sports figures for future projects.

Most likely on the cards are a period piece about the melding of the bitter rivals Pittsburgh Steelers and Philadelphia Eagles during WW2, and a biopic about Bert Shepard, the only one-legged player in Major League Baseball history.
