Football has probably reached the apex of its professional sports dominance in the U.S., so it’s time for an NFL-sanctioned movie! Tony Krantz (The Big Bang) will produce and direct Week 14, a drama said to be in the vein of Crash. The script by Ron Shelton (Bull Durham) chronicles “the last three weeks of the NFL’s regular season as seen through the eyes of fictional players, coaches and their significant others.”
Krantz’s production company Flame Ventures will accept studio bids in the coming weeks; sources tell Variety that interest is “already high.” The NFL is protective of its brand, so the material is PG-13 and targeted toward all four quadrants. More after the jump.
