RETIRED EAGLE THURMOND: MIDNIGHT GREEN TO SILVER SCREEN!

By TMZSports.com

Ex-Eagle Walter Thurmond is trading his football helmet for a movie producer’s chair, telling TMZ Sports he’s already involved in three feature films and a documentary.

Thurmond — who’s only 28 — retired last week after six very successful, but injury-plagued seasons in the NFL, leaving many fans shocked.

“I am completely done with professional football,” Thurmond tells us, “It’s time for me to pursue other passions.”

Those passions … producing and directing movies. Among the projects … a music documentary (about Eddie Levert of the O’Jays) and a feature horror film.

Thurmond’s not exactly new to the industry, saying, “I’ve dabbled in film since 2011,” but is now 100% committed to the craft … “The pedal is to the medal in the film space.”

So, who lands the lead roles in Walter’s dream cast?

Dave Chappelle … “It’d be a dream to work with one of my comedic hero’s.”

“I also think working with Peter Berg would be a great opportunity.”
