With the NFL draft beginning today, it only makes sense that Draft Day, the new football dramedy from Ivan Reitman, is also beginning production today!
In fact, the film will shoot some scenes at the actual draft, before moving to Cleveland to finish production.
In addition to the start of filming, Draft Day has added Sean “P. Diddy” Combs and Terry Crews to the already star-studded cast.
Kevin Costner stars as a General Manager who spends Draft Day trying to save a football franchise in Cleveland.
Jennifer Garner, Denis Leary, Ellen Burstyn, Frank Langella, Josh Pence, Rosanna Arquette, Timothy Simons, and Chadwick Boseman also star.
No release date has yet been set, though they my try to time it for next year’s NFL draft, or possibly even the start of the 2013 NFL season.
