Casting Directors Tackle Film Adaptations

29 February 2012 2:00 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Last week I mentioned that networks had made 99 percent of their pilot pickups. Now it's probably 100 percent, after CBS' Feb. 24 order for an untitled Martin Lawrence comedy project. (No CD yet; it's too early. But whoever it is, let's hope they bring in Reginald Ballard, aka Bruh Man, to read for a part.)Since I started this column whilst pilot season was in medias res, it's been easy so far to write cohesive pieces, centered on a single theme. But most weeks, it's going to be me trying to find some thread linking whatever random projects I come across. So you might as well get used to disjointed, rambling garbage. (Try watching a few episodes of "Lost" on Netflix instant to warm yourself up.)First up this week is a film project that has "2013 awards contender" written all over it. It's called "The Butler," and it's a biopic »
