Archie part of bad movie deal in New Orleans

BATON ROUGE — Archie Manning, Drew Brees and coach Sean Payton are among more than two dozen people with ties to the Saints who together put nearly $2 million into an Elmwood film studio that has failed to return their investments as promised.
Manning and an attorney for one of the players said Wednesday that they thought they were taking part in a routine tax credit program offered through Louisiana’s motion picture studio incentives until they discovered that the studio project never received state authorization for the credits and that their money was at risk.
