Sarandon's prayers for Bobby.
Once slated to executive-produce and perhaps to star, Sarandon parted ways with the project earlier tiffs year. "I just felt that the movie they wanted to make was not the movie that I was interested in making," she tells The Buzz. "I know they're well-intentioned and that they care about it. I hope that if [the film] gets made, it's as big and as complicated as the book."
All parties say the parting was amicable. "We appreciate Susan's initial interest in the project," says executive producer Daniel Sladek. "Prayers for Hobby is moving forward full speed, with a screenplay [by Miss Congeniality scribe Katie Ford] formally approved by both Mary Griffith and author Leroy Aarons. We're now casting and anticipate moving into production shortly."
