According to an article published by ESPN, Tom Brady is all set to make his debut on the silver screen. This is the first major announcement coming from Brady after he announced his retirement. The former Tampa Bay Buccaneer and New England Patriot quarterback is a veteran of 22 NFL seasons.
The name of the movie is "80 for Brady" and is a road trip-themed in which Brady will play himself. According to The Hollywood Reporter, he will share screen space with Hollywood stars Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno, Lily Tomlin, and Sally Field. Production is expected to start in the spring.
This is an excerpt from The Hollywood Report that explains what the movie is about: "Inspired by a true story, Brady tells of 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. Tomlin, Fonda, Moreno and Field will play the quartet."
An article published by YahooSports had this to say regarding the movie: "This whole thing sounds like an April Fool's joke, or a headline ripped from the Onion — especially because the film's plot is centered on four women who take a road trip to see Brady, their "quarterback hero" — but it's not."
Brady who launched his production company, 199 Productions in March 2020, will be producing the film in partnership with Paramount and Endeavor Content.
