Ghana?s participation in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil will certainly go down in history as the most eventful one yet! According to The Wrap, award-winning US writer- Darryl Wharton-Rigby is planning a Hollywood drama inspired by events from the ongoong world cup in Brazil.  The script for ?Wall Pass? follows a courier  which is tasked to bring $3M to an African team. The plot of the movie will see the $3m stolen after the courier is ambushed. He then has fewer than 12 hours to recover the money or face the wrath of his employers.

The screenplay has been optioned by US production company Bugeater, whose founders Dan Mirvish and Barry Hennessey will produce the film. Hennessy, an Emmy winner for reality TV show The Amazing Race, told the Wrap: ?I?ve shot extensively in both Ghana and Brazil, and this is a perfect project to capture the raw energy that both countries have to offer.?

Wharton-Rigby?s 1998 film Detention won the best director prize at the Urbanworld film festival. The thriller is the second football-related project to emerge in the past few weeks, following news that Hollywood studio Warner Bros plans to capitalise on US World Cup fever with a remake of cult classic Michael Caine tale Escape to Victory.
