New England Patriots star Rob Gronkowski is arguably the NFL’s best Tight end. When reports surfaced after the Super Bowl suggesting the Patriots star was considering quitting football to pursue a career in wrestling or Hollywood, it seemed like a legitimate possibility.
Now comes this report, which doesn’t bode well for Pats fans for a few reasons. 1. This clearly shows he’s serious about making the leap to Hollywood, and 2. He’s working with Mel Gibson?
From The Tracking Board:
As legend has it, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Sylvester Stallone have encouraged New England Patriots star Rob Gronkowski to give Hollywood a shot this off-season, and it appears the tight end has listened, as sources tell the Tracking Board that Gronkowski will join Frank Grillo and Mel Gibson in Joe Carnahan’s action movie BOSS LEVEL.
Carnahan is directing from a script written by the Borey Brothers, and the film co-stars Naomi Watts, Annabelle Wallis and Will Sasso.
A retired special forces officer is trapped in a never ending time loop on the day of his death.
Grillo will play a retired special forces veteran who becomes trapped in a never-ending loop that results in his death every day.
Gronkowski’s role is being kept under wraps, but you can safely expect him throw a punch or two. Let’s just hope he takes off his Super Bowl rings first.
Boss Level is being financed by Emmett/Furla/Oasis, whose Randall Emmett and George Furla will produce alongside Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian. The film is being produced by E/F/O, Di Bonaventura Pictures and Ridley Scott’s company Scott Free, as well as Carnahan and Grillo’s War Party.
Gronkowski has previously appeared in the Entourage movie and Dito Montiel’s The Clapper. He’s represented by UTA and Penzi Management, and this Patriots fan has a strong feeling that #87 is going to Gronk-spike this hard-hitting action role.
Gronk should do what makes him happy, and more importanly, what will keep him mentially healhty as he ages. Gronk plays football at one speed, and a certain type of way. Unfortunately for him he’s a moving target, and all it takes are a few more blows to the head before football forces him to retire. Knowing when to walk away is the hardest thing an athlete has to do. Hoping Gronk makes the right choice.
