Los Angeles: Actress Jennifer Aniston will be seen playing professional sports manager Denise White in upcoming sports drama film “The Fixer”.
Aniston will also produce the film for Fox 2000, reports variety.com.
The studio has acquired White’s life rights, Paul Solotaroff’s 2014 Men’s Journal article “The Woman Who Bails Out the NFL’s Bad Boys” and a pitch by “Dallas Buyers Club” writer Melisa Wallack.
White was a contestant in the Miss USA pageant, where she won Miss Congeniality in 1994, and has been a sports manager for more than a decade with clients including NFL stars Vince Young, Jared Allen, Brandon Marshall and DeSean Jackson. She told Solotaroff that her clients need a mother figure.
“You know, people made a fuss about the ‘Blind Side’ kid, like he was a one-of-a-kind deal,” she said in the 2014 article.
“Well, 90 percent of my clients are the ‘Blind Side’ kid and need every bit of mothering they can get. Oh, you don’t know drama until you’ve heard my horror story. I’m the only woman manager in the NFL – hell, the only woman, period, in this godforsaken league. How do you think I landed all these guys,” she added.
