Rob Reiner to Direct Film about Prop 8
Director and Activist, Rob Reiner, plans to make film about marriage equality and the Prop 8 Bill.
Rob Reiner, director of classics such as ‘This Is Spinal Tap’ and ‘When Harry Met Sally’, has announced his intent to create a feature film surrounding the Proposition 8 controversy in the U.S.
In a conversation with The Hollywood Reporter, Reiner explained his personal connection with the California ban on same-sex marriage. The director worked with the American Foundation For Equal Rights in hopes of defeating the ban, and most recently was involved in a one-night celebrity reading of Dustin Lance Black’s play entitled ‘8’.
"We have been involved every step of the way. Right now, we're waiting for the Ninth Circuit to come with their appeal decision. Either we'll win, and it will be expunged in California. If it gets appealed, it might go to the US Supreme Court. Those are the things that are most important to me. Prop 8, if we win that, will be the last big piece of the civil rights puzzle that will be put into place." Reiner said to The Hollywood Reporter.
No other details about the film have been announced yet.
