Hat tip to the folks over at The Viking Age, who were the first ones that I saw post anything about this.
When you think about members of the Minnesota Vikings that could potentially be the subject of their own movie, offensive lineman Brett Jones probably isn’t the first name that jumps to mind. However, that’s exactly what appears to be happening, as Jones is the subject of a documentary that will be coming out in the (hopefully near) future. The first trailer for Uncharted North: I Am Brett Jones has dropped, and you can see it below.
Here’s the description of the movie from the official YouTube channel of the studio that will be distributing the movie, the little park.
Minnesota Viking centre Brett Jones walked a path from the cold Canadian midwest, through injuries and trades, to playing for one of the most storied franchises in the NFL.
The movie, from what I can gather, will track Jones’ journey from his high school days in Weyburn, Saskatchewan, his college career at the University of Regina, and his time in the CFL to the National Football League, where he’s spent time with the New York Giants as well as the Vikings.
The Vikings traded for Jones in August of 2018, sending a seventh-round draft choice to the Giants to acquire his services. He appeared in 14 games with the Vikings in 2018, starting three of those games, but appeared in just two games this past season before being placed on injured reserve in November.
According to their post about it on the Twitters, this will be the first movie produced by the little park. Here’s hoping that it’s successful for them!

As someone that wants to watch just about anything football-related, I’m interested to hear more about Jones’ story and what this documentary is going to be about. The trailer simply says that the movie is “coming soon,” but if and when we get more word about when it’s actually coming out and where it will be available we will pass that information along to you.
