WHATS NEXT? Well Hollywood of course! The former Patriot quarterback, with the help of the directors of the biggest grossing film “Avengers: End Game”, will be launching 199 Productions, a global multi-platform content company to develop original premium content including documentaries, feature films and television shows. The company has quietly assembled a slate of development projects that include several with Brady on camera, in stories spanning sports, entertainment and health and wellness among others.
Their first project Unseen Football, was announced earlier this month. The feature is described as a fast-paced, incandescent big-screen 3D adventure documentary designed to take viewers into the invisible realms of football, guided by the most successful quarterback in NFL history. It’s said that the docu will be a love letter to his sport and Brady will introduce innovative aspects of the game at every level – high school, college, NFL – isolating plays on screen and examining them from the cellular to the macro level.
“Tom is one of the most successful, iconic and inspiring sports figures in history. We want to bring his story, and the story of the game he loves, to the big screen in a way that gives audiences an experience of football that they’ve never had before. As passionate fans of Tom, and the game, we’re thrilled to partner with and him and his amazing team on this special project.”
Said the Russos.
The film will be directed by Gotham Chopra, co-founder of Religion of Sports and the exec producer of the 2018 Emmy-winning Facebook Watch’s Tom vs. Time. That docu-film drew 100 million views on Facebook, making it one of the most widely viewed sports documentaries in history.
As natives of New England, we here at CritiX would just like to thank Tom for his dedication and hard work while playing for The Patriots. We wish you the best of luck on your future endeavor in film.
