How to Write a Movie Script About Sports

A sports movie is a movie genre which makes use of sports as the central theme of the movie. It’s a fictional production where a fictional sport, player, event, or supporter of that sport are heavily involved, and that rely on sport to some extent for their plot’s resolution or motivation. Sports movies have become increasingly popular over the past few years. There has been a noticeable increase in the number of sports themed movies released, with major successes such as The Hangover and Iron Man 2 making the genre incredibly popular. If you’re interested in this genre, but don’t know where to start, we’ve created a quick guide to help get you started.

The first thing you should consider when looking to make a sports movie is who the star of the movie is. Of course, if the story is based around a famous athlete, then that’s almost certainly going to be the star. But if it’s about a relatively unknown star, then it may be a good idea to go with a less well known star to ensure more mainstream appeal. This can mean going with an obscure college or high school athlete who is the hero of the story, or choosing a character who isn’t as famous. There is no shortage of famous athletes for movies involving sports, from baseball to basketball, football to soccer, NASCAR to NASCAR racing, and wrestling to the UFC.

Next you need to work out what sports aspect the movie is focusing on. Is it about a major sport? If so, there are plenty of Hollywood writers who have successfully written stories based around many different sports, including football, basketball, tennis, hockey, golf, baseball, rugby, boxing, wrestling etc. Try to find someone who has written a script that deals with a similar sports aspect (e.g. the rise and fall of steroid use in the NBA) and/or has written a movie before which helped to popularise the same sport (e.g.

If it’s about something not covered by the main focus of the story, but is still important, you need to find a writer who is knowledgeable about the subject matter. There are plenty of writers out there who are passionate about sports but do not have a background in the film industry. Take your time to weed out those who don’t really know what they’re doing. You’ll probably have better luck picking up a quality sports film from someone with a more diverse background.

Finally, you’re going to want to make sure you develop a killer screenplay. It’s amazing how many films try to cram as much action, dialogue, character development and sports within one hundred twenty minutes. It doesn’t matter how many sports you cover or how much you want to make it happen, if it’s filled with sub-plots and rushed scenes you won’t be successful. Take your time when writing a movie and break it down into smaller sections and scenes. This will ensure you have quality content and avoid lots of unnecessary rewriting.

Sports is an incredibly popular genre. There are countless books, magazines, television shows and even video games dedicated to covering the world of sports. Because of this, it’s easy to see why an athlete would want to create a movie or television show related to his or her sport. Even if you don’t want to make a sports film, there is no reason you shouldn’t think about the world of sports. The next time you’re out driving or sitting on the couch, put aside some time to consider how many sports you’ve covered and how well those sports have done in terms of entertainment value.
