(Newser) – Super Bowl LI was one for the ages—and also one destined for the big screen, apparently. Deadline reports an upcoming book and film will recount the New England Patriots' remarkable comeback win in overtime with a focus on quarterback Tom Brady, who's now won more Super Bowls than any other quarterback at five. But the book and film will also reportedly explore Brady's journey to that title, including the Deflategate controversy. The writers behind The Fighter (Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson) have signed on to the project, per Deadline, along with the authors of Boston Strong (Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge).
