Two years after a Super Bowl win when NFL head coach Sean Payton is suspended, he goes back to his hometown and finds himself reconnecting with his 12 year old son by coaching his Pop Warner football team.
On Tuesday, Netflix shared an exclusive first look at and trailer with PEOPLE for the family comedy Home Team, in which James, 56, plays New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton.
James’ Payton coaches the kids team alongside Twilight’s Taylor Lautner.
“I play Coach Troy, the coach of a peewee football team that Connor Payton is a part of. We don’t have much success but we have fun which is what’s important,” Lautner, 29, tells PEOPLE. “My character is very much the older brother figure for the kids. He’s not great at football but has a great relationship with the kids, whereas Sean Payton comes in and is an amazing coach but needs to work on his rapport with his son and his teammates.”
“It’s been a blast working on Home Team,” he adds. “I did Grown Ups 2 with Kevin but I’ve been a big fan of his for as long as I can remember. This was super exciting for me to work alongside him and watch him and learn from him. He’s a true professional and a hilarious, very talented man.”
The film also stars Adam Sandler’s wife Jackie Sandler, Rob Schneider, Gary Valentine, Tait Blum, Maxwell Simkins, Jacob Perez, Bryant Tardy, Manny Magnus, Liam Kyle, Christopher Farrar, Merek Mastrov, Isaiah Mustafa, Christopher Titone, Ashley D. Kelley, Lavell Crawford, Allen Covert, Anthony L. Fernandez and Jared Sandler.
It’s directed by Charles Kinnane and Daniel Kinnane, written by Christopher Titone and Keith Blum, with Happy Madison and Hey Eddie Productions producing the project.
Home Team is on Netflix Jan. 28.
