I bet when everyone first heard Fred Durst scream the chorus of his rendition of George Michael’s late ’80s hit “Faith”, they had no idea he would someday make a feature-length film, never-mind two. Yes, TWO – he also helmed a indie drama titled The Education of Charlie Banks, which won an award at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival. The Limp Biscuit frontman’s second film, The Longshots, tells the true story of Jasmine Plummer who, at the age of eleven, became the first female to play in Pop Warner football tournament in its 56-year history. Written by the writers of Akeelah and the Bee and Prison Break, The Longshots stars Ice Cube and will hit theaters on July 25th 2008 from Dimension Films. It seems like the typical sports drama, but, who knew Fred Durst could direct a movie? Check out the trailer below and tell me what you think.
