CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Published reports say Kevin Costner is coming to Cleveland to shoot a movie about ..... The Cleveland Browns!

Costner will portray a Cleveland Browns GM who is trying to restore his team to past glory.

The film, which is reportedly titled "Draft Day" was supposed to be shot in Buffalo, NY, but the city lost out to Cleveland.

Sources close to the production say when it came down to it, it was just cheaper to shoot in Cleveland than Buffalo -- in fact $3.5 million cheaper than Buffalo.

The movie is set to be directed by Ivan Reitman.
