Rob Gronkowski, football star of the New England Patriots, has joined the cast level of Joe Carnahan. Mel Gibson and Frank Grillo also play a starring role in the action movie by Smokin ‘Aces and the writer and director of A-Team. Two-time Oscar nominee, Naomi Watts, also appears to be shooting the project.
Boss Level plays as Grillo the role of a former Special Forces soldier in a perpetual loop where he dies every day just to be reborn. The Borey Brothers (Open Grave) wrote the script, whose premise is reminiscent of both Edge of Tomorrow and Groundhog Day. The details of Mel Gibson’s character are not yet known, but we can assume he’ll be crazy. Annabelle Wallis and Will Sasso also play a starring role.
As reported by The Tracking Board, NFL star Rob Gronkowski will move to Grillo and Gibson in the Boss level. No details are known about the character of Gronkowski in the film.
Gronkowski, an All-Pro-Tight End for the New England Patriots, recently complained about the possibility of leaving football to pursue a career as an action star. Sylvester Stallone and Dwayne Johnson have reportedly encouraged Gronk to follow this path. So does Gronk’s casting on boss level mean he will continue his plan to leave the patriots for the entertainment world? Tom Brady would surely be sad if he sees one of his favorite goals. Gronkowski’s early credits include cameos like himself in Entourage, Family Guy and The Clapper. He has played several times as a person other than himself, including a role that was deported in 2017 as a party Guy Jake.
Of course, the NFL stars who make the leap to the big screen are nothing new. Hall of Famer Jim Brown made his way into the 1960s for the first time and called for his resignation from the Browns as he sat on the set of The Dirty Dozen. Some players have followed important careers in the show, including Fred “The Hammer” Williamson, Carl Weathers and Terry Crews. Last year, former cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha even won some awards for his performance in the independent film Crown Heights. Others, such as Brian Bosworth and Howie Long, were less successful in the transition. O.J. Of course, Simpson also followed the NFL’s route to Hollywood, where he showed everything from Capricorn One to Naked Gun films before he became infamous.
It happens that the boss level is currently filming. Therefore, Gronkowski’s participation will not overlap with off-season patriotic official activities such as the training camp. Nevertheless, Patriots fans might want to worry about losing their star final against the bright lights of Hollywood. Making films is much less painful than playing professional football, and Bill Belichick does not look at you if you’re wrong.
