Tom Brady is getting a movie about himself.
The newly retired NFL QB hasn’t taken any time off from the Hollywood hustle.
Variety reports the former Patriots player is getting a movie made titled “80 for Brady.”
The outlet reports Brady will produce and appear in the movie which also stars Hollywood icons including Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Sally Field, and Rita Moreno.
Hollywood Icons Will Star In New ‘Brady’ Movie
“80 for Brady” is inspired the true story of four best friends and New England Patriots fans.
The group of four women take a life-changing trip to Super Bowl LI to see Brady play. Of course, things go array along the way and will show the chaos that ensues as they navigate the wilds of the biggest sporting event in the country.
Super Bowl LI was held in 2017 at NRG Stadium in Houston, TX between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons.
The Patriots won the game 34-28, and Brady took home the MVP title.
Earlier this month, The Blast reported on the endless business deals Brady has received since announcing his retirement.
Tom Will Produce & Appear In “80 for Brady”
According to a report from People, Brady is fielding broadcasting offers.
“There are a lot of projects in the works. He also has crazy offers from networks who want him to be a broadcaster,” their source says.
The source also noted that Brady’s agent, Jason Hodes, has gotten an “unprecedented volume of opportunities ranging from broadcast and streaming offers to publishing and brand deals.”
Tom reportedly was not focused on broadcasting at all, the insider added. He’s getting a ton of offers which have huge salaries attached, which is making it hard for him to resist.
On Tuesday, February 1, Tom announced his official retirement from playing in the NFL.

The Blast also reported that there was some confusion surrounding his retirement status.
Over the weekend, ESPN reporters Adam Schefter and Jeff Darlington had reported that Tom Brady had officially announced his retirement from football. However, that announcement was quickly backtracked with many wondering if Brady was ready to return for another season.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback has had a successful run throughout 22 seasons and seven Super Bowl titles. Prior to his two-season run in Tampa Bay, Brady had spent two decades with the New England Patriots.
Brady has been widely recognized as one of the greatest quarterbacks in world history. During his first season with the Buccaneers, Brady led the team to their second Lombardi Trophy, making Tampa Bay the first team in league history to play and win the Super Bowl in their home stadium.
Could Brady Become A Football Broadcaster?!?
It seems that Brady has decided that he has accomplished as much as he needs to in his career, and is ready to retire.
He finally announced the news for himself.
On Tuesday, February 1, the NFL pro took to Instagram writing, “I have always believed the sport of football is an ‘all-in’ proposition – if a 100% competitive commitment isn’t there, you won’t succeed, and success is what I love so much about our game,” he began. “There is a physical, mental, and emotional challenge EVERY single day that has allowed me to maximize my highest potential. And I have tried my very best these past 22 years. There are no shortcuts to success on the field or in life.”

“This is difficult for me to write, but here it goes: I am not going to make that competitive commitment anymore. I have loved my NFL career, and now it is time to focus my time and energy on other things that require my attention,” he continued.
“I’ve done a lot of reflecting the past week and have asked myself difficult questions,” he went on. “And I am so proud of what we have achieved. My teammates, coaches, fellow competitors, and fans deserve 100% of me, but right now, it’s best I leave the field of play to the next generation of dedicated and committed athletes.”
“To my Bucs teammates the past two years, I love you guys, and I have loved going to battle with you,” he added. “You have dug so deep to challenge yourself, and it inspired me to wake up every day and give you my best. I am always here for you guys and want to see you continue to push yourselves to be your best. I couldn’t be happier with what we accomplished together.”
