John Madden was an NFL legend, making an impact on the sport both as a coach and a commentator.

His video game franchise is one of the most popular games in the world, and now his legacy will be honored on the silver screen.

Per Deadline, the recently deceased legend will have a movie made about him. And per the report, Will Ferrell is in the mix to play the coach/commentator:

Will Ferrell is in huddling to star as the NFL’s John Madden in Madden, a theatrical feature to be directed for Amazon/MGM by five-time Oscar nominee David O. Russell (American Hustle), multiple sources tell Deadline.

There is no set date for the release of the movie. We’ll see if the deal between Ferrell and the studio ends up working out and what take Ferrell has for playing the legendary personality.
