Feature Film About Tom Brady in the Works

Submitted by BursleyHall82 on February 16th, 2017 at 10:22 PM

Hollywood is making a movie about Tom Brady. It's from the makers of "Patriots Day," and it's going to be about the latter years of his career - particularly this past season with Deflategate and Super Bowl LI. I'm sure there will be a scene where Brady comes back to his alma mater and throws the ball around with Jim Harbaugh.

Matt Damon is way too short to play Brady, so I'm not sure who they're going to get.

You know, they actually need Goodell to play himself just so he can be hated in other mediums aside from league pressers and on any NFL affiliate. I am sure if you wrote the role in a very specific way, he would be all to happy to incriminate...errr.....play himself in such a film if it meant perceived glory to the league.

Matt Damon is a good guess. But it's gonna be Marky Mark. Height doesn't matter, he already played a 6'5" seal. Not saying I support the choice, but it's just gonna be that way.

I'd say Christian Bale... skinny dude, tall enough I suppose.  And A hair trigger temper, would be kind of a natural fit.

Also Michael Fassbender, can sell just about anything.  

Viggo Mortensen looks A LOT like him, but I don't know if the mannerisms really match.

Matt Damon has done good work, but his face is so expressionless, I don't know.

My fiance thought Ivan Sergei from the movie The Break Up with Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Anniston was actually Tom Brady. He does look alot like him IMO too.

A espn 30 30 is nice but we want Hollywood baby a full length motion picture. I want Academy awards, I want Oscars and Red Carpets baby. Clint Eastwood directing or maybe Opie, Steven Spielberg. Nothing but top notch for The Great Tom Brady. The .greatest QB to have ever put on a uniform period.

How about at least one college scene?  Like maybe the Northwestern game his senior year? 

I want to know who would have played me sitting in the stands watching him throw touchdown passes to David Terrell.
