CLEVELAND – Thursday night, not only can Browns fans watch the NFL Draft at a local bar, they can be in a major motion picture starring Kevin Costner.
“Draft Day” is starting production and while Costner will be shooting scenes in New York City, Browns fans are welcome to head to the Tilted Kilt in Cleveland. That’s where movie crews will shoot a scene for the film.
The manager of the pub said production will start at 8 p.m., but he said it’s a good idea to get there early considering the big crowds they’re expecting.
“I got to tell you the entire staff is just electric about this. I mean to have the opportunity to be in the background of a major motion picture is just fantastic. We couldn’t ask for anything better,” manager Tim Swan said.
Swan said if you plan on coming, you need to dress in your best Browns gear.
“The movie guys need a scene where there is a local bar, fans going crazy to the different picks that Kevin Costner is making and they actually selected to that here.”
“Draft Day” is about saving football in Cleveland. Costner plays a fictitious General Manager of the Cleveland Browns.
The movie also features Jennifer Garner and Denis Leary.
