Tom Brady is on a roll. He has a Super star studded exhibition golf match, he has the return to the NFL on the sheets. And there’s also the ESPN+ series called Man in the Arena. But probably the most exciting news would be that he is coming to the big screen soon! ‘Brady for 80’ is the name of the movie. It is a story where 4 octogenarians set out on a road trip. Possibly to find Brady. Fans were hooked from day 1. But when he decided to return to the field, there were doubts around the making of the movie. And TB12 recently confirmed through an Instagram Post that the movie is alive and happening.

The movie will feature four brilliant Hollywood actors. Jane Fonda, Sally Field, Lily Tomlin and Rita Moreno will be playing Brady’s die hard fans. And TB12 will be seen playing himself. And even for that it seems, the GOAT took a lot of time during shooting. In an Instagram post, Brady poses with the four amazing actors and confirmed that the movie is on track.

However, he probably made sure that the shoot schedule does not meddle with his training schedule. How he fares on the big screen is not that big a surprise though. Fans have seen that acting is not his best trait. Like Al Pacino would probably not do that great as the likes of Aaron Donald charge towards him, Tom Brady too probably struggles to hit the right emotion when Jane Fonda delivers a line to him.
