Geesh! Save the drama for the actual movie!
Last month, producer Mark Gordon and his company acquired the feature film rights to the book All-American Murder: The Rise and Fall of Aaron Hernandez, the Superstar Whose Life Ended on Murderer’s Row, which details everything from Aaron Hernandez‘s murder charge to his suicide in April 2017.
Unfortunately for him, another Hollywood exec, Todd Guzze, believes he owns the rights to the NFL player’s story, and has allegedly threatened Gordon and his employees!
According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Gordon is accusing Guzze of leaving him a scary voicemail namedropping two gangs — The Latin Kings and The Bloods — claiming Aaron was a member of both, and that he is “keeping them at bay right now.”
Allegedly, Guzze hinted things could get physical by saying:
“I don’t need to tell you how [the gangs] work… They’re right here in L.A.”
Guzze also allegedly sent another threat online that read:
“Are you ready? I hope it’s worth it.”
The Mark Gordon Company helmer is asking the courts to keep Guzze at least 300 yards away from his office, and all of his employees.
In response, Guzze told TMZ:
“Mark Gordon has taken this too far. Aaron Hernandez is a very sensitive story and I’ve made him aware on multiple occasions that no one is doing this story but the family and the original partners that were closely tied to Aaron and his estate… There is more to come, concerning Aaron’s story, and by making this a public spectacle, I feel it’s just throwing gasoline on the fire.”
The book was written by James Patterson and Alex Abramovich with Mike Harvkey, and was published on January 22, 2018.
