O.J. Simpson will make his biggest screen appearance since “The Naked Gun” series, the New York Daily News reported, but Simpson doesn’t want the film released until after the presidential election because of its racial undertones.

Norman Pardo, a 51-year-old promoter for the jailed former football legend, created a 90-minute film called “The Unpromotable,” the Daily News reported, a film about his life after acquittal in the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ronald Goldman in 1994.

Pardo followed Simpson around the country after the trial collecting 70-plus hours of footage of the former football star traveling to events in an attempt to rebuild his image from 2001 until he was sent to jail in 2008 in an armed kidnapping case.

“It’s him with girls all over him in clubs,” Pardo told the Daily News. “It doesn’t show him in a great light, (but) in both lights. I do show what it’s like to work with him.”

Simpson never gave in to the public’s opinion of him as a murderer, Pardo said.
“O.J. never felt there was anything negative about him at all,” Pardo told the paper. “Even to this day, he never sees it. Maybe he blocks it out.”

Simpson, who is serving a 33-year sentence in Nevada for kidnapping, robbery, and using a deadly weapon in 2008, has requested the film be released until after the 2012 election because it has a racial undertone and Simpson, according to Pardo, doesn’t want to make the election about race and affect President Barack Obama’s chances to win, the Daily News reported.

“We just talk about happy things because he’s really depressed right now,” Pardo told the Daily News. “But he works out every day, he’s really buffed up.”
