Which biopic would be most interesting: Brady or Butler? (2:00)

Mike & Mike try to determine if Tom Brady's Super Bowl LI victory story is more compelling than Malcolm Butler's unlikely rise to NFL stardom. (2:00)

Tom Brady's story will be coming to a bookstore and movie theater near you, Deadline reports.

Both the book and film will focus on the New England Patriots quarterback's career and his run to a fifth Super Bowl victory and will also chronicle Deflategate and its aftermath, Deadline reports.

The project will pair writers Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson, who were nominated for an Oscar for "The Fighter," author Casey Sherman and Boston journalist Dave Wedge, according to Deadline.

Sherman and Wedge were co-authors of "Boston Strong," which was used as the basis for "Patriots Day," for which Tamasy and Johnson were executive producers.

Deadline reports the writers have sources with the team who will provide insight as to what went on behind the scenes during Super Bowl LI, as the Patriots launched a furious comeback to post a 34-28 overtime win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Brady, who is not involved in the project and did not authorize it, isn't the only member of the Patriots whose story will be heading to the big screen. The Hollywood Reporter said cornerback Malcolm Butler's story will be turned into a movie entitled "The Secondary," which will chronicle his rise from working in a fast-food restaurant to having two Super Bowl rings.
