Patriots’ Tom Brady Book and Movie on the Way

The New England Patriots’ most valuable player goes Disney.

Tom Brady just won his fifth Super Bowl and he’s going to Disneyland. The New England Patriots’ quarterback who commandeered the first overtime win in Super Bowl history will be the topic of an upcoming book and movie from the writers of Disney’s The Finest Hours.

The book and film will be written simultaneously. The screenplay will be written by Paul Tamasy (Air Bud) and Eric Johnson, who write the films The Finest Hours, The Fighter and Patriots Day. The book will be co-authored by Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge, the team that penned Boston Strong, which was the basis for the film Patriots Day starring Mark Wahlberg.

“When we’re looking for stories, we’re looking for these universal themes of overcoming odds and people using moments of adversity to inspire,” Wedge told EW. “The game that we just saw a couple of weeks ago really encapsulates who that guy is. … It’s made for a movie.”

The book will also cover the controversial Deflategate investigation that caused Brady to be suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season.

The 39-year-old quarterback earned his fourth Super Bowl MVP in Super Bowl LI. The Patriots came back from a 25-3 lead by the Atlanta Falcons at halftime to a 34-28 victory. The Patriots won their fifth Lombardi Trophy under head coach Bill Belichick.

No word on kickoff time, but the team promises this is “on its way.”
