Kevin Costner Draft Day Leads to an R Rating
Recently penalized with an R rating for harsh language, the Ivan Reitman-directed Kevin Costner starrer Draft Day Appeals Board today gave it a PG 13. In the film Costner plays a general manager trying to figure out what to do with with the top pick in the NFL draft. If there wasn’t room for a few choice cuss words in that high-pressure even, it wouldn’t be believed football. CARA chairman, Joan Graves represented the ratings board, and Lionsgate’s Erik Feig successfully appealed the call on the field. This is among the three movies in the offing for Costner, who should get a real career second wind after the football pic which opens on April 11 this year. Also Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit and 3 Days to Kill.
