‘Fantasy Football’ Cast Gets More Starry

‘Fantasy Football’ follows 16-year-old Callie Coleman, played by Martin, who discovers she can control her father, Bobby Coleman’s football prowess on the field. Coleman will be played by Hardwick. She can do it by playing EA Sports Madden NFL Game.

Kelly Rowland will play Callie’s mother, Kiesha Coleman, while Flynn will play Bobby’s rookie rival, Anderson Fisher.

The Nickelodeon and Awesomeness Films project will begin filming this month in Atlanta, Georgia.

NFL Films and EA Sports worked in tandem to lend their expertise to the film’s production. Currently, the live-action film is set to premiere later this year on Paramount+.

Emmy nominee Anton Cropper will direct while Emmy winners Dan Gurewitch and David Young will write. The film is based on an original screenplay by Richard T. Jones, Jeremy Loethen and Tim Ogletree.

Rounding out the cast are Elijah Richardson (as Nate), Hanani Taylor (Kayla), Abigail Killmeier (Margot), Tyla Harris (Zoey), and Isac Ivan (Oliver). NFL Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez will also appear in the film. After retiring from football, Gonzalez first became an analyst before becoming an actor.

NAACP Image Award-winning director Cropper said he’s excited to work alongside EA and the NFL to deliver a fun family movie.

In addition to starring in the film, Marsai Martin will serve as producer. She and Joshua Martin will produce under their Genius Entertainment banner and in partnership with LeBron James and Maverick Carter’s Springhill Company.
