New England Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler once ruined the day of Seattle Seahawks’ fans everywhere on the small screen, now he aims to do it on the big screen too. Per The Hollywood Reporter, producer Daniel Levin (Lion) has acquired the rights to Butler’s life story, which will be called “The Secondary.”
I guess at least “Legion of Boom” is still available.
Butler’s game-ending interception against the Seahawks in Super Bowl 49 will no doubt be included, meaning that we might even get to see actors playing Russell Wilson, Ricardo Lockette, and Pete Carroll. Or they could just play themselves, since Wilson has already put on an Oscar-worthy performance for the Entourage movie.
But the movie’s main focus will be on Butler’s rise from working at Popeye’s three years ago to becoming a Super Bowl hero and as of today, one of the best corners in the NFL who is surely on the verge of signing a mega-deal. (He is a restricted free agent.) The news comes shortly after the announcement of a Deflategate movie that we also may just want to avoid whenever that gets released.
When are we going to get a feature film of Pete Carroll as a robber baron?
