Jennifer Garner Looks Ready for ‘Draft Day’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Kevin Costner co-stars in football pic

The NFL draft may still be a couple weeks away but the Kevin Costner sports dramedy “Draft Day” which is set around the event is beginning to fill its ensemble team, as Jennifer Garner is in negotiations to co-star with Costner.

Ivan Reitman is on board to direct with Summit on board to distribute.

The story follows 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.

Reitman will produce along with Ali Bell and Tom Pollock through his Montecito Motion Picture Company banner from a script by Scott Rothman and Rajiv Joseph. The film looked to be on its last legs last fall when Paramount had to put the film into turnaround after its option on the project ran out.

The film was given a second chance after the Black List was released with “Draft Day” topping the list. Shortly after the Black List news, both Summit and Costner became intrigued and began negotiating to come onto the project.

Garner was most recently seen in Disney’s “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” and can be seen next in “Dallas Buyers Club” with Matthew McConaughey. She is repped by WME, Management 360 and Offer Weber & Dern.
