After you lead your team to the largest comeback in Super Bowl history and clinch your all-time leading fifth title, even Hollywood takes notice. 

That seems to be just the case, as has reported that Oscar-nominated writers Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson are working on both a book and feature film that will cover Tom Brady and the New England Patriots’ amazing comeback victory over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI.

Tamasy and Johnson, who were nominated for an Oscar for their work on the film The Fighter and who have also wrote and produced Disney’s The Finest Hours and the Boston Marathon based film Patriots Day, are currently working with New York Times bestselling author Casey Sherman and Boston journalist Dave Wedge on both pieces.

According to Deadline, the movie is expected to not only be focused around the tremendous comeback win, which turned a dud of a Super Bowl into one of the most thrilling games in the history of the league, but also is expected to delve into the entirety of the Deflategate saga and Brady’s redemption through this past season.

Tamasy and Johnson have worked with Sherman on both The Finest Hours and Patriots Day, using his books as basis for both films.

The two writers are also said to already have a number of sources in the Patriots’ locker room that will add insight and first-hand accounts of the monumental comeback.

Both the book and film will surely be must see products for the New England region. They might not have the best reviews in Atlanta however.
