Diddy (Get Him To The Greek) will be flexing his acting chops once again in a new sports drama film titled, Draft Day, alongside Kevin Costner (Hatfields & McCoys) and the star of this year’s Jackie Robinson biopic 42, Chadwick Boseman.
Directed by Ivan Reitman, Draft Pick tells the story of an NFL GM (Costner) in Cleveland struggling to find the number one draft pick for his team.
No word yet on what Diddy’s role will entail, but Boseman will play Vontae Mack, an outside Louisiana linebacker, whose athleticism is
overshadowed by his big personality.
Rosanna Arquette (What About Brian), David Ramsey (Arrow) and W. Earl Brown (Rectify, The Lone Ranger) have also been announced as part of the production from Co-producers Summit and OddLot Entertainment.
To get actual NFL draft footage, filming is taking place today at Radio City Music Hall. Draft Pick will be out sometime in 2014.
