El Paso filmmakers create documentary on former Cowboys QB Tony Romo

News

El Paso filmmakers have created a full-length documentary about former Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Tony Romo called “Now or Never a Tony Romo Story.”

Director Chris Hanna and his team at ZGN Productions, LLC reached out to Romo’s coaches, who eventually introduced them to Romo himself.

Hanna said the documentary is unique because it shares the story of Romo’s experiences before his NFL career.

The film is already complete, but the local filmmakers still need funding to pay fees including licensing for the NFL game footage.

“We’re pursuing investors. We’re pursuing sponsors so we can cover these fees so we can get the film festival license so we can show the film across the world at the highest level. We are trying to do an academy awards qualifying film festival,” said Hanna.

Hanna said Romo’s best friend has watched an unfinished version of the film and approved of it. Now, they are just waiting for Romo’s reaction.

ZGN Productions, LLC is hoping to have a showing in El Paso before the end of the year.
