Paramount Pictures has acquired worldwide rights to 80 for Brady from Endeavor Content, who will produce the film.
Seven-time Super Bowl Champion and producer Tom Brady will appear and produce through his production company, 199 Productions, alongside Oscar winner Donna Gigliotti (Hidden Figures) and Endeavor Content (The Lost Daughter, Cha Cha Real Smooth). Endeavor Content developed the film with Brady and Gigliotti.
The feature project is inspired by the true story of four best-friends and New England Patriots fans who take a lifechanging trip to the 2017 Super Bowl LI to see their hero Tom Brady play, and the chaos that ensues as they navigate the wilds of the biggest sporting event in the country.
The film is co-written and directed by Kyle Marvin (star of Wecrashed and co-writer and star of The Climb), who is also executive producing with partner Michael Covino (The Climb) under their Watch This Ready banner and Jeff Stott.
Starring are Oscar nominee Lily Tomlin, Oscar winner Jane Fonda, Oscar winner Rita Moreno and Oscar winner Sally Field.
Marvin and Covino wrote the latest script based off a draft by Emily Halpern & Sarah Haskins (Booksmart).
Writer, producer, director and actor Marvin can next be seen opposite Jared Leto and Anne Hathaway in the highly anticipated Apple TV+ limited series WeCrashed, debuting on March 18. Marvin co-wrote, produced and starred in The Climb, which he developed in partnership with Michael Covino. Marvin’s other writing credits include Conventional Wisdom, a TV pilot sold to Fox; Amoeba, an animated feature for House Of Cool; and thriller The Quench for Bron Studios.
