Tim Howard's life story made into a film

Amazon has secured the rights to make a feature film based on the life of USA, Manchester United and Everton goalkeeper, Tim Howard.

The recently-unretired Memphis 901 FC goalkeeper, now 41, has an inspiring story that's already been told by the man himself in the 2014 book “The Keeper”. Producer Mark Ciardi says that Manchester United are amenable to filming at Old Trafford next year.

So why are they filming it at Old Trafford — when he spent most of his time as Everton's Number 1?

Not the greatest goalie, but an interesting character.

I remember he was asked on TalkShite which was the more hostile atmosphere, the Manchester or the Liverpool derby. He simply smiled and said "Once you've played in goal at the Azteca for the USA, nowhere ever seems hostile again".

I'm guessing the Mexicans get a little fired up for that one!

Darren, not the best I agree, but certainly not the worst, and IMO much better than the keeper we have now. Tim also came across as a decent guy.

Nice guy, met him briefly at Alder Hey once. Memories are skewed by him overstaying a little, but he was generally solid for a good spell for us.

Keegan-Michael Key would be good for the part.

I saw this mentioned somewhere else, although can't now remember where, & got the impression that the focus was very much on his first full season or so with Manchester United rather than a comprehensive biographical film.

I take it that Jags and Baines will have supporting roles.
