The San Jose Mercury News has the details of the film here.

“For me, it’s just about having some fun,” Lynch told the Mercury News. “It’s just a fun experience. I also get to the shine light on the community and some of the things that we grew up doing and what we went through.”

This won’t be the big-screen debut for Lynch, who played small role (the part of “Massive Goon” in the 2013 film “Matt’s Chance.”

I’m more than ready to play myself,” Lynch said with a laugh. “I got the acting bug when I played a small role in Matt’s Chance starring Gary Busey.I definitely want to expand my opportunities after football. I’ve also been on a couple TV shows, so I’m not nervous.”
