El Pasoan making Tony Romo documentary
EL PASO, Texas —
A young El Paso filmmaker is making a name for himself in the sports world.
Chris Hanna has teamed up with Bunee Tomlinson to create a documentary on the life of NFL quarterback Tony Romo called “Now or Never.”
The duo said the inspiration for the film came from an article they read about Romo’s journey to the NFL.
The filmmakers have interviewed former coaches and teammates, people who knew Romo growing up and even Romo himself.
They said the focus isn’t all about the NFL.
“The documentary deals with who he really is as a person rather than who he is as the Cowboys quarterback,” Hanna said.
Tomlinson said it hopes it teaches people about perseverance.
“The focus of the film is, you know, Tony Romo had a lot of ups and downs in his career and the filfilm was kind of showing what is going through an NFL player’s mind, but also to show that whatever success you’re trying to show to pursue, it’s not always going to go your way.
Both of the filmmakers went to Chicago to shoot the documentary.
The hope to have it completed and released by early next year.
