Production on an upcoming football-centered film will kick off this week as the real-life 2013 NFL Draft begins Thursday at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
Sean “Diddy” Combs, Terry Crews, Chi McBride, David Ramsey and league star Arian Foster have all reportedly joined the cast of Draft Day, also starring Chadwick Boseman and Kevin Costner.
According to Shadow & Act, Costner will take on the role of an NFL team’s general manager who is forced to make some tough professional and personal decisions in the 24-hour period of the draft. Boseman is set to play a college linebacker with dreams of going pro.
The sports drama, directed by Ivan Reitman, will also star Jennifer Garner, Ellen Burstyn, Denis Leary and Frank Langella.
After filming wraps in NYC this weekend, production will head to Cleveland, Ohio.
