Sean Combs behind 'Undefeated' studio project

Rapper and entertainment mogul Sean 'Puffy' Combs has agreed to executive produce a fictionalized remake of Undefeated, the Oscar-nominated made-in-Memphis football documentary.

The Memphis & Shelby County Film and Television Commission is hoping the studio project will be shot in Memphis as the documentary was last year.

Deputy Commissioner Sharon Fox O'Guin told News Channel 3 that, "It really would have a huge impact in the millions if they were to film here."

Undefeated is nominated for Best Feature Documentary at the Academy Awards later this month.
