There were photos circulating around the internet yesterday that included Julian Edelman, Rob Gronkowski, and Tom Brady wearing Patriots gear, which definitely had some people talking.
Edelman posted a photo that saw him and the future Hall of Fame quarterback in team uniform pants, along with his former teammate, tight end Rob Gronkowski yet at the time, no one knew why but it appeared to be recent. The trio was apparently on a movie set and Brady is reportedly co-producing a film called “Eighty for Brady”, which according to IMDB.com, is a football-themed road trip movie about four Patriots fans who travel to Super Bowl LI to see Brady play.
The film is reportedly based on a true story and will include actresses Sally Field, Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Rita Moreno.
The film is listed on IMDB.com with a summary that reads, “The movie is inspired by the true story of 4 best friends and New England Patriots fans who take a life-changing trip to 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.”
Other actors listed as being in the film include Jimmy O. Yang, Harry Hamlin, Sara Gilbert, Bob Balaban, Ron Funches, Glynn Turman, Mellanie Hubert, Jim Tavare, Michael Heidemann, Amy Tolsky, Fatimah Hassan, Stephanie Nash, and Charlie Morgan Patton.
The movie is being directed by Kyle Marvin, with “199 Productions” – Brady’s media company – listed as one of the production companies involved with the film.
