Imagine a movie starring Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno and Sally Field as four friends on a trip to the Super Bowl, then add Guy Fieri and Billy Porter.
Prior to Tom Brady Taking fans on a “will it or not” journey regarding his retirement from the NFL, the seven-time Super Bowl champion has created his own production company, 199 Productions. The 44-year-old quarterback is no stranger to screens big or small. He made appearances in the Surroundings movie and Ted 2, alongside Mark Wahlberg. He also hosted SNL in 2005 and spoke out for family guy and The simpsons. Now Brady will be in front of the cameras again. This time he will not only star (as himself) but also produce the film 80 for Brady.
Plans for the project, directed by Kyle Marvin, co-written by Michael Covino and produced by Paramount Pictures and Endeavor Content, were announced earlier this year. Filming for an impressive cast, which includes Lily Tomlin, Rita Moreno, Jane Fonda and Sally Field, has already been completed. Tomlin and Fonda already have a long track record of successful chemistry in slime comedy since their 1980 hit 9 to 5 up to their most recent work in Netflix Grace and Frankie.

Also joining the cast of characters is Billy Porter (Laid), who is one Oscar away from joining the elite group of EGOT winners. No additional information was provided regarding Porter’s character.
Also starring in 80 for Brady are Harry Hamlin (Angie Tribeca), Sarah Gilbert (The Conners) and Glynn Turman (Fargo). There have been plenty of movies featuring an all-star cast since movie history and 80 for Brady is filled with well-known personalities who can pull off the funny. Brady’s 199 Productions was named after its pick number in the 2000 draft and will be “a global cross-platform content company to develop original premium content, including documentaries, feature films and TV shows,” according to company announcement in 2020.
