Jennifer Garner is set to join Kevin Costner in the ensemble comedy “Draft Day”, says Variety.
The Ivan Reitman (“Ghostbusters”) directed film stars Costner as “the manager of an American football franchise who struggles to acquire the number one draft pick for his team on the day of the draft. Garner will play Costner’s secretary in the pic.”
The film was originally set up at Paramount, who put it into turnaround last year. Summit are behind the latest try.
The script, by Scott Rothman, topped the Black List (Hollywood’s best Unproduced Screenplays), which intrigued both the studio and Costner.
