A British writer and director claims his new film will prove O.J. Simpson’s innocence in the deaths of his estranged wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman in 1994.
Despite being acquitted for the murder in court, it’s long been believed the former baseball star got away with murder. He was, however, ordered to pay $46.4 million to the victims’ families for "wrongful death" – an amount 71-year-old O.J. is yet to pay.
"Nicole & O.J. will reveal the untold circumstances leading up to the murders and why and how Nicole and Ron were killed and the cover up that followed," Newton told the website.
"We have gone into an incredible amount of detail to capture the life O.J. and Nicole led and their marriage. This makes the film more fascinating to watch. At their peak, they were America's number one celebrity couple and we wanted to take viewers into their world."
Newton added, "The reality is that O.J. exploded into rage because of his grief repeatedly asking 'what do you mean Nicole is dead?' while the detective on the phone kept telling him he has no information. This is just one example of many where the prosecution attempted to deceive the jury, the press and the public. Thankfully the jury saw right through it and that's why O.J. was acquitted."
