Draft Day

Hot on the heels of this morning's trailer for Million Dollar Arm with Jon Hamm, another trailer for a different sports centric project has debuted. Draft Day brings Kevin Costner back to the world of sports, but this time it's in the pigskin tossing sport of football. The script made the top of the Black List in 2012 and Lionsgate picked it up to bring to the big screen. The original story focused on the general manager of the Buffalo Bills trading to get the #1 draft pick, but the studio was given proper incentive to shoot in Cleveland, so now it's the Cleveland Browns as the team in question. What makes this truly interesting is the cooperation of the NFL, so we won't see a bunch of fake sports teams in this flick. Watch the trailer below!

Here's the first trailer for Ivan Reitman's Draft Day, originally from Yahoo:

Draft Day is directed by Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters, Stripes) and written by newcomer Scott Rothman and Rajiv Joseph ("Nurse Jackie") On the day of the NFL Draft, general manager Sonny Weaver (Kevin Costner) has the opportunity to save football in Cleveland when he trades for the #1 pick. He must quickly decide what he’s willing to sacrifice in pursuit of perfection as the lines between his personal and professional life become blurred on a life-changing day for young men with dreams of playing in the NFL. Jennifer Garner, Denis Leary and Frank Langella also star in the film which Summit Entertainment releases on April 11th.

    This ones gonna bring the Oscars, sports films are pretty much the best genre ever invented, apart from Christian rock films.

      Not really. Moneyball was about taking mathematics and numbers and applying them to player evaluation in an old sport stuck in it's ways. This seems more of a Ditka trading the his entire draft for one player movie remake kinda thing.

    Being from Cleveland and a lifelong Browns fan, I think this would be more accurate as a tragic comedy.

    You know, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say maybe, just maybe this is the film that helps to redeem some of the Costner Crap which has been made in the past. Maybe this is the one that brings him back to a Bull Durham level of game. Here's hoping.

    Looks like a very smart business play. Let's see how the movie plays.
