O.J. Simpson Miniseries

O.J. Simpson Movie Is Currently In The Works

An O.J. Simpson TV movie centered around his murder trial is reportedly in the works at FOX.

The former actor and football star was accused of murdering wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ronald Goldman back in the 90s. The infamous trial will now be adapted into a made-for-television movie from the writers of The People vs. Larry Flint.

The O.J. Simpson movie is reportedly based on the book The Run of His Life: The People vs O.J. Simpson by author Jeffrey Toobin. The tome was released back in 1997, roughly one year after the not guilty verdict was handed down.

FOX made the announcement about the miniseries on Wednesday. The network said the project “will take viewers behind the scenes of ‘The Trial of the Century,’ driven by the nonstop plot of a courtroom thriller and presenting the story of the trial as it has never been told.”

FX Productions will spearhead the project. The People vs. Larry Flint and Man in the Moon writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski will help bring the feature to life on the small screen.

Although the court case took place back in the 90s, people are still fascinated by it. FOX is hoping this continued interest in the trial will draw people to the proposed O.J. Simpson movie.

“Everybody remembers where they were when O.J. Simpson, riding in a white Bronco, led the police on a low-speed chase all over Los Angeles,” FOX said in a recent statement.
