Boise State Is Going Hollywood
In this case, get ready to roll out the blue carpet. Boise State officials are expected to reach a deal to sell movie rights of the Broncos' 2006 season and dramatic Fiesta Bowl victory in the next few weeks. University officials have been told that the rights could be worth between $250,000 and $750,000. Under consideration are rights to a documentary and a movie, using the documentary as a springboard for the movie script. Five producers — from New York, Hollywood and Idaho — have contacted the university. "These producers have described it as a David and Goliath-like story," Boise State director of communications and marketing Frank Zang said. "They say it has the makings of a great feature film in the vein of classics like 'Hoosiers,' 'Rudy' or 'Miracle.' They have been inspired by a story that transcends football. It's about creativity, courage, risk-taking and even romance."
