Actor Isaiah Washington, formerly a lead on the hit ABC medical drama Grey's Anatomy, is heading to the medical world of the NFL, in the upcoming independent film Game Time Decision.
According to Deadline, in the film Washington plays a retired football player who, after years of head trauma, is now suffering from brain damage and a degenerative brain disease. The story follows his attempts to warn his estranged son, also a football player, about the very real danger.
The story is written and directed by Matthew A. Cherry, a former football player himself. Washington himself will be an executive producer on the project, and production is scheduled to begin in the spring.
