MGM Planning A NASCAR Movie

MGM has set “Empire” co-executive producer Robert Munic to pen an untitled movie set in the NASCAR racing community.

“The Bible” series producers and MGM TV president Mark Burnett and Roma Downey brought the project to MGM’s film division but aren’t yet attached as producers. The pair were developing a television series revolving around the sport.

NASCAR will continue to work with MGM and Munic in developing the project, and plot details aren’t out beyond it being set in the world of NASCAR.
