Tom 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 Wednesday that the New England Patriots’ star quarterback will have his Super Bowl heroics chronicled in a feature film and a book.
The writers of the Oscar-nominated boxing movie “The Fighter” are working on the script, according to the report. The book and film reportedly also will delve into the Deflategate controversy and Brady’s journey to his record fifth Super Bowl title.
The writers reportedly already have spoken to several sources inside the Patriots locker room in an attempt to provide an inside look into New England’s comeback win, in which the Patriots erased a 25-point deficit by scoring 31 unanswered points against the Falcons.
No release date for the book or film was announced.
