A better world might not be the only good thing to come from the Supreme court's marriage equality debates! It looks like the Prop 8 movie is getting the fast track!
Last year, Dustin Lance Black put on a play called 8 in NYC and L.A. — and Rob Reiner, one of the directors, already knew he wanted to take it to the big screen!
Of COURSE there's going to be a big-screen adaptation, and Black is on track (that rhymes!) to finish up that script as fast as he can! Which makes sense, because the media buzz around the debates has been huge. If you're going to bank off of it (and inspire everyone while you're at it), it better be now!
We're hearing it's slated to be directed by Reiner, but shooting probably won't happen until June or July — when the Supreme Court finally rules on the ridiculousness of Prop 8. No word on who will star, but if they take any of the cast members for either city, it'll be perfect!
In L.A., it was George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Bomer, Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Kevin Bacon. In NYC, it was Morgan Freeman, Ellen Barkin, John Lithgow and Cheyenne Jackson.
Seriously, if they just picked the stars from either of those casts, we'll be SO HAPPY!
Equality for all!
