It looks like the director of Stand By Me, This Is Spinal Tap and A Few Good Men is waiting for the ending of his next project.
Rob Reiner says he’ll be making a feature film about the battle over Proposition 8, the California law forbidding same-sex marriages. Only the real-life saga behind the legislation is still in legal flux.
Such a film’s box office potential appears limited, but award season voters may given it plenty of love given the project’s likely stance on the matter. Reiner is in favor of same-sex marriage as is Black, the openly gay screenwriter who won an Oscar for his work on the 2008 film Milk.
