Marsai Martin, Kelly Rowland, and Omari Hardwick to star in upcoming Paramount+ film, ‘Fantasy Football’




Marsai Martin, Kelly Rowland, Omari Hardwick, and Rome Flynn will be starring in Nickelodeon’s Fantasy Football based on an original screenplay by Richard T. Jones, Jeremy Loethen, and Tim Ogletree.

The upcoming film will be premiering the day after Thanksgiving on November 25 exclusively on Paramount+ produced in association with NFL Films and with the support of EA SPORTS™ as well as the Atlanta Falcons and Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Marsai Martin serves as a producer on the movie with her company Genius Entertainment as well as stars in the movie as “Callie A. Coleman.”

Fantasy Football shows a hilarious and heartwarming relationship between a father-daughter where Martin’s character discovers that 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 is transformed from a clumsy player to a star running back who is destined for superstardom alongside his daughter and wife Keisha (Kelly Rowland). 

The film is also produced by Nickelodeon Films in partnership with Maverick Carter and LeBron James’ company, and The SpringHill Company.
