The Madden Curse is the supposed jinx on any athlete who appears on the video game cover of Madden NFL. Past victims include Vince Young, who suffered a serious quadriceps injury in 2003, and Daunte Culpepper who ended his season with a knee injury the previous year.
What has been cast off as fan superstition and unfortunate coincidences may now be coming to the Big Screen. Electronic Arts, who produces the video game, is developing a sports comedy called the “Madden Curse,” but the plot will not be what fans think….
According to Pat O’Brein, VP of EA Entertainment, “The story will follow a former Madden video game champion who is forced out of retirement just as he finds himself on the corner of the game’s cover — and subject to the curse.”
I wonder if the movie will be rated M?
