Trivia:

In 1989, Bo Goldman was hired by Penny Marshall to write a script based on her mother. At the time, Goldman was working with Warren Beatty on Dick Tracy (1990) and even though Goldman had completed his work on the script, Beatty was furious that Goldman had moved on to another project. The script was titled "Time Step" and was still in the works through the early 1990's but was eventually shelved. See more »
