The internet was treated in February to roughly four minutes of sloppily edited footage featuring Marshawn Lynch for what appeared to be a biopic based on the Seahawks running back. (Watch it here.) Those four minutes are apparently all the public will get, because Family First is reportedly never seeing the light of day.

Lynch’s friend Mario Bobino told Rolling Stone that Lynch got him $100,000 to produce the movie, and Bobino used some of his own funds after spending the entire budget. He said the two are no longer on speaking terms:

“My story is the truth, so people know what happened and what I had to deal with,” he says. “If that movie had come out and it would have been successful, I would have gotten no credit. Now that it’s considered a failure, everyone is pointing the finger at Mario Bobino.”

Lynch’s agent Doug Hendrickson also had a comment on Family First:

He did a terrible job, and the film will never be released.

Ah. Anyway, if you know how to get more footage of the Lynch project, get in touch with us at tips@deadspin.com.
