A spokesperson for NFL star Jason Taylor announced today that the veteran defensive end, who played in 2008 with the Washington Redskins and last year appeared on TV’s "Dancing With The Stars," has signed with Universal Studios to star in an upcoming action drama.
The film is reportedly titled, "Never Say Tomorrow Or Die," and will feature Taylor as Ridge McFarland, an undercover FBI agent whose entire family was killed twice by a Mexican drug lord. Ridge will seek revenge, and will unveil a new martial arts technique known as "tang fu," a deadly combination of kung fu strikes and tango dance steps. "We believe this will sweep the nation and become the next hot franchise," said the spokesperson. "It’s Gymkata for the 21st century."
