The movie “The Magician” is getting closer and closer to filming. The story is about the life of former Miami Dolphins WR Marlin “the Magician” Bricscoe. His life is detailed in the book, “The First Black Quarterback”, available on Amazon.com. You can also listen to exclusive interviews that we conducted two years ago when the movie was nothing more than a combined effort of the West Omaha Film company by clicking here.
The film is drawing interest from some of the bigger names in Hollywood and as the project gets closer to filming the company continues to line up investors to support the film. You can help.
The company has set up the Marlin Briscoe store where you can purchase articles related to the marketing of the motion picture. T-shirts, blankets, and outerwear.
Simply visit http://www.marlinbriscoemovie.com/store/ and be one of the first to own a piece of a film about real NFL history.
Then, get the book. It is a riveting read that will let you into the life of one of the NFL’s first black stars that has been purposely forgotten because of his long engaged drug use. His story of redemption and recovery gives the reader an in depth view of how pro athletes struggle both during and after the game has stopped in their lives.
Or simply click on the link above and listen to Marlin tell you himself. Phinphanatic fully supports this project and we encourage all of you to do the same. Help get this story told so we can all see that the first starting Black quarterback in the NFL gets his due.
Personally, I love the shirt that simply says “What inspires you?” You can bet I will be wearing that within the next week.
