Emmy-winners Guy Fieri and Billy Porter were prominent characters in the road comedy “80 for Brady”.
According to The Hollywood Reporter NFL star Tom Brady will be appearing in and producing the movie through his 199 Productions shingle. Kyle Marvin, actor and writer behind the indie film The Climb has joined the board to direct a script that he co-wrote along with Michael Covino. It is based on a draft written by Sarah Haskins and Emily Halpern at Booksmart.
Brady is inspired by a true story. It centers around four friends who are Patriots fans and New England Patriots players. They take a life-changing trip in 2017 to see Tom Brady, their quarterback. As they navigate the chaos of the largest sporting event in America, chaos ensues. The quartet includes Tomlin and Fonda as well as Moreno, Field, and Moreno. Fieri will appear as a cameo while Porter’s character details are still being worked out.
Endeavor Content is producing Donna Gigliotti, Oscar-winner who co-wrote the script along with Brady. Marvin and Covino along with Jeff Stott will executive produce under the Watch This Ready banner.
Filming for 80 For Brady is now complete. The release date is not yet known.
