There haven’t been many films about pro football in the past few years, and the ones who have haven’t gotten permission to use official NFL logos and team names. But that’s about to change, with the news that the National Football League is eyeing a jump into feature films.

Variety reported Tuesday that the NFL is teaming with “Bull Durham” director Ron Shelton to make a feature film called “Week 14.” The film is described as an ensemble drama, in the vein of “Crash,” looking at the last three weeks of an NFL season through the eyes of players, coaches and teams’ families.

Studios are expected to bid on the project in the coming weeks, with production to begin following the Super Bowl.
