Deflate My Balls: The Tom Brady biopic is coming

EXCLUSIVE: A new book and feature film project about Tom Brady, who has won more Super Bowls than any quarterback in NFL history, is on its way. 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 bestselling author Casey Sherman are reteaming.

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, which they got story by credit on and also executive produced.

The Brady book and film will chronicle the New England Patriots superstar’s come-from-behind win in Super Bowl LI, but it’s not going to shy away from controversy and will include the team’s battle to overcome the Deflategate debacle in 2014, follow Brady’s fall from grace and then his triumphant return to lead the Patriots to his fifth world championship. That surprising overtime victory against the Falcons this month cemented Brady’s and Bill Belichick’s legacies as the top quarterback and head coach in NFL history.

The writers already have cultivated several sources inside the Patriots locker room to provide a first-hand look at what went on behind the scenes in a Super Bowl that had everyone on the edge of their seats. The game, which the Patriots won 34-28, drew comparisons to other iconic moments in sports history such as Muhammad Ali’s win over George Foreman in the 1974 “Rumble in the Jungle.”

Tamasy and Johnson also recently penned the screenplay about 5,000-to-1 underdog Leicester City’s miraculous run to the English Premier League title. We’re told that Sherman and Wedge (who both work in Boston) had a front-row seat and watched the drama unfold.

Sherman’s book The Finest Hours, which Tamasy and Johnson adapted, was made into a film last year that starred Chris Pine and Casey Affleck, the latter a Best Actor Oscar nominee for Manchester By The Sea.

The writers are repped by WME and The Gotham Group.

I feel like the movie probably won't be called that.

Yea no shit. Like Brady or not he is the best of all time. What the NFL did over that stupid fucking deflategate is beyond one of the dumbest fucking things of all time.

Not a Patriots fan. I can appreciate the talent of Tom Brady however unlike some...

I guess the project gets some credit for simply mentioning one of the multiple cheating scandals. I wonder if it will gloss over them, as most fans do, or actually look at them objectively.

Eli Manning will be his Lex Luthor in the film.

It'd be even better if she played herself.
