FANTASY FOOTBALL kicked off a week of special activities in anticipation of its platform release on Paramount+.
From the Los Angeles Premiere to the sidelines of the Atlanta Falcons game, Marsai Martin, Kelly Rowland, Omari Hardwick, and Rome Flynn, joined by cast and crew, lit up red carpets from coast to coast.
We had the opportunity to interview the stars about their new film. Check it out the interviews down below.
The comedic family sports film FANTASY FOOTBALL is directed by Anton Cropper and also stars Elijah Richardson, Hanani Taylor, Abigail Killmeier, Tyla Harris, and Isac Ivan, and features special star appearances by Nate Burleson, Jim Nantz, and Tony Romo.
In this hilarious and heartwarming father-daughter sports fantasy, everything changes when Callie A. Coleman (Marsai Martin) discovers she can magically control her father Bobby’s (Omari Hardwick) performance on the football field. When Callie plays as her dad, a running back for the Atlanta Falcons, in EA SPORTS Madden NFL 23, Bobby transformed from a fumblitis-plagued journeyman to a star running back bound for superstardom alongside his daughter and wife Keisha (Kelly Rowland).
With the NFL Playoffs looming and the pressures of Callie’s new commitment to her friends on the robotics team mounting, the two must forge ahead to keep the magic a secret as they juggle the highs and lows of their newfound success, all as they rediscover what it means to be a family.
FANTASY FOOTBALL is produced in partnership with The SpringHill Company’s Emmy award-winning studio team founded by LeBron James and Maverick Carter and Genius Entertainment, spearheaded by Marsai Martin, Joshua Martin, and Carol Martin.
Produced in association with NFL Films and with the support of EA SPORTS™, the Atlanta Falcons, and Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the movie is written by Zoe Marshall and Dan Gurewitch & David Young, which is based on an original screenplay by Richard T. Jones & Jeremy Loethen and Tim Ogletree.
