By Meredith Alloway · April 8, 2014


Rajiv Joseph and Scott Rothman, the writing duo behind "Draft Day" sit down with ATW. The film centers on Sonny Weaver Jr. (Kevin Costner) as he prepares to draft new members for his football team. Facing pressure from Coach Penn (Denis Leary) and owner Anthony Molina (Frank Langella) he's willing to take a few risks. Ivan Reitman direct directs and Jennifer Garner also stars. Joseph and Rothman talk about writing a film about football, family and how screenwriting mirrors the craft of the draft.
