Well, another sports-themed movie in a row. This time, Summit Entertainment has debuted the first Draft Day trailer and the first poster for the sports comedy which stars Kevin Costner as NFL general manager Sonny Weaver who has the opportunity to save football in Cleveland when he trades for the number one pick, while balancing his personal and professional lives at the same time.
Directed and produced by Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) from a script by Rajiv Joseph and Scott Rothman, the upcoming flick also stars Jennifer Garner, Frank Langella, Timothy Simons, Ellen Burstyn and Denis Leary, and also features football luminaries such as ESPN’s Chris Berman and Deion Sanders.
Since the script landed on the Black List, here’s hoping the result is a generic, but watchable movie.
Draft Day comes to theaters April 11th, 2014.
Hit the jump to watch the first trailer in all of its ‘Costnerish glory’.
