Tom Brady has wasted no time in making his first post-playing-career move.

According to reports from The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday, the all-time great NFL quarterback is taking his talents to the big screen to act in a new road-trip comedy called "80 for Brady."

Featuring Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno and Sally Field, the movie is based on a true story inspired by four best friends and New England Patriots fans who made a trip to the Super Bowl in 2017 to watch their idol play.

NFL and pop culture fans took to Twitter to react to this news. "Brady producing a film about four friends idolizing him is so shockingly on brand it's almost self-parody," one fan wrote. "Legitimately thought it was a satire account tweeting this," another said. "Is Matt Damon playing Bill Belichick? #tombrady," another asked.

Production will reportedly begin later this spring, but no official filming or release date has been revealed. Brady's production company, 199 Productions, will help produce the film.
