The Hollywood Reporter is exclusively reporting that Tom Brady has made his first post-retirement move from the NFL, making a move to produce and also appear in the football-theme road trip film 80 For Brady, which is being made by Paramount Pictures and Endeavor Content and will star Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno and Sally Field.
Inspired by a true story, the film will focus on four best friends and New England Patriots fans who take a life-changing trip to the 2017 Super Bowl LI to see their quarterback hero, Tom Brady, play and the chaos that ensues as they navigate the wilds of the biggest sporting event in the country.
The report states that Tom Brady has been deeply involved with the project since its inception, developing it with Donna Gigliotti and Endeavor Content. Brady will be producing through his production company (199 Productions), along with Gigliotti and Endeavor Content. The film will be directed by Kyle Marvin, who co-wrote the script with Michael Covino, with the pair also executive producing under their banner, Watch This Ready, alongside Jeff Stott.
Production is scheduled to commence this Spring.
