The NFL may be planning to invest league money in a new film that revolves around the Buffalo Bills.
According to "New York Magazine," NFL officials are considering endorsing and investing in "Draft Day," a new film that stars Kevin Costner as a fictional general manager of the Bills.
The movie reportedly shows Costner's character using the first pick in the NFL draft to overhaul the Bills and lead them to glory.
The NFL hasn't given its blessing to the project yet and is historically very protective over its intellectual property.
The use of its names, logos, team names and other licenses haven’t been allowed since the 2006 movie “Invincible” starring Mark Wahlberg.
NFL officials famously denied Oliver Stone the use of NFL logos and names in his 1999 flick "Any Given Sunday."
