SHARE Simeon Rice has a movie coming out

Former NFL defensive end Simeon Rice used to watch a lot of film. Now he’s directing one.

The former Illinois and Mount Carmel star directed and co-wrote “Unsullied,” set to debut in theaters on Aug. 28.

Rice always had an interest in film. After 12 seasons in the NFL, Rice retired in 2007 and soon after attended some classes at the New York Film academy.

IMDB gives this synopsis:

Unsullied is a independent feature film inspired by a true story that tells the story of Reagan Farrow, an athlete who is kidnapped and must fight for survival after escaping her captures and fleeing into the great wild dark unknown.

Rice described the suspense movie for The Tampa Tribune:

This movie will take you back to ‘Deliverance,’ ‘‘ Rice said. It’s an original with a lot of plot twists and at the end, we go big. It’s a thrill run.’’

Lou Canellis of Fox-32 caught up with Rice recently on “The Final Word:”
