Last year, original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman revealed that in addition to Paul Feig’s upcoming film, Captain America: Civil War directors Joe and Anthony Russo were developing a separate spinoff with Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum rumored to star.

A working knowledge of how the NFL’s somewhat antiquated but weirdly compelling draft system plays out is not necessary to enjoy Ivan Reitman’s ‘Draft Day.’ In fact, such a knowledge base may actually prove detrimental, if only because there’s absolutely no way that the majority of what happens on the big screen ever goes down in real life.
