The first trailer for director Ivan Reitman’s “Draft Day” has arrived online.
Kevin Costner stars in the film as an NFL manager who is faced with tough professional and personal choices in the 24-hour period of the NFL draft.
With Reitman in the director’s chair, newcomer Scott Rothman penned the script alongside Rajiv Joseph (“Nurse Jackie”).
The plot was explained by Joseph, an avid Browns fan, during a March 2013 interview with the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
“It’s a movie that takes place in one day,” Joseph said. “It’s about the general manager of the Cleveland Browns. His professional and personal lives collide on the day of the NFL draft. He has these draft picks and he’s trying to save his team, which is going down the drain. Not a big stretch for many Browns fans.”
Frank Langella, Jennifer Garner, Denis Leary, Sam Elliott, Terry Crews, and Chadwick Boseman also appear in the movie.
Summit Entertainment will release “Draft Day” on April 11. Check out the trailer below.
