NFL to produce ‘Lombardi’

The National Football League is looking to drive deep into the film biz with its first major foray into feature production. Country’s preeminent sports league has become directly involved in a movie project for the first time, producing a biopic of one of the game’s most storied figures, Green Bay Packers coach Vince Lombardi. The NFL will produce “Lombardi” with Andrew Hauptman’s Andell Entertainment (“Lions for Lambs”) and Chris Olsen. Financing for “Lombardi” hasn’t been finalized as it’s still undecided whether the NFL will put up any coin for the production.
