Owen Wilson Turned Down Millions For An OJ Simpson Movie For One Reason

Once known as a football all-star (who played as a running back in the NFL for teams like the Buffalo Bills and the San Francisco 49ers) and an erstwhile actor who appeared in the original “Naked Gun” films, O.J. Simpson’s assorted achievements have been (rightfully) overshadowed ever since he was arrested for the murder of his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman. The initial trial took place in 1995, and Simpson was acquitted, but suspicions that he did commit the murders followed him for the remainder of his life. (Simpson was, incidentally, found liable for damages and ordered to pay Brown and Goldman’s families a combined sum of $33.5 million, but never completed the payments in full and the amount has tripled.) Simpson was ultimately arrested in 2007 for breaking into a Las Vegas casino and stealing sports memorabilia that he claimed belonged to him; he was sentenced in 2008 and released from his prison sentence in 2018. In the midst of all of this, Simpson wrote a book called “If I Did It” about Brown and Goldman’s murders, which certainly didn’t improve public perception.

On April 11, Simpson’s family released a statement saying that the public figure had passed away due to complications from cancer. Remembrances of Simpson have all remarked upon his constant legal battles and the suspicion regarding Brown and Goldman’s murders that constantly followed him, and director Joshua Newton’s film “The Juice” certainly sounds like it will rehash the case once again.
