Not only will Malcolm Butler and Tom Brady be featured on the big screen, so will their coach Bill Belichick.

Belichick has agreed to narrate a one-hour film called, “D-Day: Over Normandy”.

According to a release, the film “is a unique production in that it relies primarily on only drone aerial shots of many of the important Allied objectives on June 6, 1944 as the liberation of western Europe got underway.”

“Growing up in Annapolis, Maryland, where my father coached football at the United States Naval Academy, I understand the importance of preserving the memory of those who served our nation during World War II,” Belichick said in the release. “Every day of my childhood, I was immersed in the tradition of the United States Navy. I was, and remain, inspired by their discipline, teamwork and courage, especially the sailors who fought on D-Day and in the Pacific theater, where the U.S. Pacific Fleet sacrificed so much for ultimate victory. The Navy, Army, Air Force and Marines made one heck of a team in World War II.”

The movie, which is produced by Rhode Island’s Tim Gray, is set to air on PBS stations around the country.
