Nice Guys Get Started

Image The title of one of the greatest crime dramas in the history of cinema rightfully belongs to Martin Scorsese's film Goodfellas, in which Ray Liotta embodied the image of the gangster Henry Hill.

In the 70s of the last century, Hill and his friends carried out a wide variety of scams and machinations. In 1978, they found themselves drawn into the world of sports betting and bookmaking when they had the opportunity to organize a series of match fixing with the Boston College basketball team. Through bribery, blackmail, and threats, the bandits convinced the team's key players to provide them with the score they needed.

During the 1978-1979 season, match fixing organizers managed to earn hundreds of thousands of dollars. The fraudulent scheme was not disclosed until the early 80s, when Hill became an FBI informant.


As reported by Deadline , one of the most high-profile scandals in the history of US student basketball will be dedicated to the Boston College Fix tape. The film company New Line Cinema is working on the sports drama. The film will be written by Robert Carlock (The Reporter, Friends / Friends ) and directed by Seth Gordon (The Horrible Bosses) ...

The Boston College basketball scandal was first covered in detail by Sports Illustrated back in 1981. Thirty-three years later, the documentary Playing for the Mob, created by the sports channel ESPN , helped to find out new details of this case.


Brett Ratner ("The Survivor") will be hired to produce Boston College Fix .
