The filming of the movie about Tom Brady and his Super Bowl run during the 2016 season is officially underway. This week, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback posted a photo of himself with Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno, Lily Tomlin and Sally Field. The four actresses are starring in the film 80s for Brady, which is about a group of friends who take a road trip to see the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.
"80 For Brady!," Brady wrote in the caption of the post. "So grateful for these legendary women and the entire team that's working to bring this story to life. How many times do you think I had to call for my lines?" Brady is starring in the film as himself and is also an executive producer. In March, Fonda talked about how Brady sent her flowers after she had her shoulder replaced.
