Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch’s cinematic biography, “Family First: The Marshawn Lynch Story,” has issued a four-minute trailer for the movie that is still in post-production. The story traces Lynch’s rise from junior football in Oakand to college at Cal and on to the NFL.
First disclosed Tuesday by USA Today’s For the Win, the trailer has Davonte Lynch, Marshawn’s younger brother, portraying him in high school. Lynch stars as himself starting at Cal. No scenes were shown of his time with the Seahawks. Director Mario Bobino told the site there is no release date yet.
Lynch became a cause celebre at Super Bowl XLIX because of his refusal to respond to media questions. What little he did say — “I’m just here so I won’t get fined” — became an internet meme for which he has applied for trademark status.
As he does with his play, Lynch prefers to initiate contact with the media too.
