In his first post-retirement move, Tom Brady is dashing into Hollywood to produce and star in a football-themed road trip titled, 80 for Brady. 

Hollywood icons like Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno, and Sally Field will also star in the project that is being made by Paramount Pictures and Endeavor Content. The film will be directed by Kyle Marvin, who also co-wrote the script with Michael Covino. 

80 to Brady is heavily inspired by the true story of four best friends, who happen to be New England Patriots fans, who take a life-changing trip to the 2017 Super Bowl to see their quarterback hero, Tom Brady, play. Chaos soon ensues as the friends navigate the wild energy surrounding the biggest sporting event in the country.
