Supposed True-to-Life Bio Of Marshawn Lynch Won’t Be Released


The much-anticipated movie titled “Family First: The Marshawn Lynch Story” will never see the light of day according to Kenneth Arthur of Rolling Stone.

Shot in Oakland and starring the aforementioned Lynch, the movie was supposed to be a true-to-life and inspiring biopic about the enigmatic Seattle Seahawks star but it has been clear the project went tragically wrong ever since a four-minute trailer was released in February. Wooden acting, stilted dialogue, cheap sets and poor lighting dominated the four-minute clip.

The decision to shelve the project permanently was reportedly made by Lynch himself and he is no longer on speaking terms with the film’s director (and his longtime friend) Mario Bobino.

“He (Bobino) did a terrible job, and the film will never be released,” Lynch’s agent, Doug Hendrickson said.

ironically, Lynch had initially approached Bobino about directing the film, and helped secure the $100,000 to get the project off the ground. Lynch has since reimbursed his investor. Lynch stopped supporting the project after Bobino released the trailer without notifying him and without his permission-a serious violation of trust with a star as secretive and private as Lynch.

In another odd twist, Bobino is now writing a script about his difficulties in making “Family First”. He poured his own money into finishing the movie after Lynch pulled out. “It will never be the same between us,” Bobino said. “I think the issue with me and him now is a trust issue. He doesn’t trust me anymore, so that’s why the movie isn’t going to come out. It’s a trust issue with me now because I put out that promo out with his consent.”

It is hard to believe this movie will never see the light of day considering the proliferation of internet videos, You Tube, etc. Look for “Family First” to eventually play at a midnight screening near you.

Here’s the four-minute trailer of the film:
