How cool is this?!?
Just when we thought that all football players do is pump lots of iron or eat during their off-season or once they retired, we learned that some of 'em are taking part in the second Hollywood Boot Camp at Universal Studios to brush up on some skills in the film industry.
Yep! The four-day long program has been put into place by the New York-based film production company, Film Life Inc. and NFL Player Engagement and covers everything from directing, producing, screen writing and film financing.
The boot camp is set to be ran by Legendary Pictures executive, Thomas Tull, director/producer Peter Burg and writer/actor/director Robert Townsend.

And on top of learning the basics, the players will also be able to shoot and edit their very own short film.
Excited about the program, senior vice president of NFL Player Engagement, Troy Vincent said:
“We are excited to continue providing opportunities for active and former players to explore and develop valuable professional contacts in a wide range of career fields."
We can't wait to see what these athletes come up with!! We bet whatever they do is gonna be football-alicious!!
The program runs from March 11-15.
Have fun guys!!
