For his next film, screenwriter Gregory Allen Howard is remembering more than just the Titans.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the writer of true sports tales like 'Remember the Titans' and 'Ali,' is taking on another story from sports history, that of quarterback Marlin "The Magician" Briscoe, the NFL's first black starting quarterback.

"To be the first in anything is challenging. To be the first starting black quarterback, the thinking position, has real significance," Howard told the Hollywood Reporter. "I'm going to tell this personal story of Marlin Briscoe and use football as a backdrop."
