Question Cowboys Texas Stadium

Just some heresay but a guy I was next to at the game this past monday said he had heard that some film producer approached Jerry Jones about filming Texas Stadium when it's blown up or something to that extent for a movie.
Anyone hear anything like this? That'd be pretty cool if it's legit

Jerry must have cut him a sweet deal on leftover stadium seats.

I heard Texas Stadium and Reunion Arena are on the market for film companies to blow up. Sounds like the cities are trying to be smart and offset some of the demo costs on these properties.

LMGDAO! Why hate the man for doing what he does best? If you were in the same position, you'd do the same damn thing. But since you're not, you have to hate. People like you crack me the fuck up. Some people never can get past their jealousy.

It's not like a bomb goes off and everyone is scattering like the Twin Towers coming down.

It's controlled and they allow spectators within a half-mile or so of most implosions. Get a spot in a parking garage and check it out.

The destruction of the Stadium will be up to the City of Irving . . . but I don't see why they wouldn't take some money from a film producer.
