Simpson To Star In Winner's Next Film?
British film director Michael Winner is hoping his pal O.J. SIMPSON will star in his next movie.
The Death Wish hitmaker forged an unlikely friendship with the sportsman-turned-actor last year (07) and now the pair is collaborating on a possible film role for Simpson.
The former American football player was sensationally acquitted of killing his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ronald Goldman in 1994, and has since landed a variety of movie cameo roles.
But Winner insists he doesn't let his friend's troubled past affect their working relationship.
He jokes, "He's a very nice man for a double murderer.
"He came to see me about a year ago, and I said to (his fiancee) Geraldine, 'Answer the door, dear, and if he comes to the door with a knife throw yourself in front of me.'"
