Brady to be immortalised in film

TOM Brady. Quarterback. Five-time Super Bowl champion. Subject of a Hollywood film.

Brady apparently has just one-upped teammate Malcolm Butler. On the same day it was reported that Butler's life story would be the subject of a movie, Deadline reported that the New England Patriots' star quarterback will have his Super Bowl heroics chronicled in a feature film and a book.

The book and film reportedly also will delve into the Deflategate controversy and Brady's journey to his record fifth Super Bowl title in Houston.

"Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson, the writers behind Disney's The Finest Hours who were nominated for an Oscar for The Fighter, and New York Times best-selling author Casey Sherman are reteaming," the Deadline report said.

"Joining up with them is Boston journalist Dave Wedge, who was Sherman's co-author on Boston Strong. Tamasy and Johnson used the book as part of their source material the basis for Patriots Day [starring Mark Wahlberg], which they got story by credit on and also executive produced."
