Malcolm Butler has made a name for himself on the football field and now he appears to be on his way to making a name for himself in Hollywood.
The Patriots cornerback’s story reportedly will be featured in a movie called “The Secondary” with the help of Daniel Levin, whose Narrative Capital also secured rights for the Oscar-nominated “Lion,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Butler went from playing at West Alabama, to working at Popeyes, to signing with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent, to making one of the biggest plays in Super Bowl history as a rookie to help beat the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX.
The film is also set to feature Butler’s agent, Derek Simpson.
“Lion and The Secondary are against-all-odds stories of struggle and inspiration,” Levin said. “Derek would not stop until Malcolm got a chance.”
