Russell Brand Does A Soccer Comedy

Russell Brand is attached to star in an untitled soccer-themed comedy reports Deadline Hollywood.

William and Scott Bindley’s story pitch has Brand playing a David Beckham-esque soccer star and playboy who gets arrested in West Texas.

As community service, he’s forced to coach the local high school’s rather inept soccer team in a town dominated by American football. Brand, Bill Bindley, Nik Linnen and Mike Karz will produce.
