Intramural is an upcoming 2014 independent sports comedy film directed by Andrew Disney, based on a script by Bradley Jackson.[1] The film stars Jake Lacy, Nikki Reed, Kate McKinnon, Beck Bennett and Jay Pharoah, and focuses on a group of college seniors that decide to form an intramural football team before graduating.[2] The film is planned to be released around the 2014 NFL season.


Caleb (Jake Lacy) is a fifth-year senior preparing to graduate. Not quite ready to settle into the life, expectations, and realities outside of his college, he decides that he wants to reassemble The Panthers, an intramural football team that had to shut down after one of the team members ended up getting partially paralyzed for life. Doing so is going to be far more difficult than he expected.



The film's script was written by Bradley Jackson during his sophomore year at the University of Texas, where he was inspired to create the script after listening to his friends brag about their intramural sports games.[3] Jackson expressed his desire to have Andrew Disney direct the film, as he greatly enjoyed his work.[4] Nikki Reed was later confirmed to be performing in the film, as would Beck Bennett and Michael Hogan.[5] Jackson and Disney raised funds for the film through a successful Kickstarter campaign,[6][7] and filming began on July 12, 2013 in Austin, Texas and continued for six weeks,[8] ending on August 22, 2013.[9] During the campaign, the film received $450,000 after a Friday filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.[10]
