Wow, Danny Glover sure is getting his name out there. Two casting announcements in two days?
Well, on top of yesterday’s announcement that the former Sergeant Roger Murtaugh will be starring in Shooter we now learn that he is in final negotiations to star in Michel Gondry‘s Be Kind Rewind for New Line Cinema.
Gondry also wrote the pic, which stars Jack Black as a man who becomes magnetized at a local power plant. He accidentally erases all the videotapes at the local video store owned by Glover’s character. Instead of telling the stubborn, old-fashioned store owner what happened, Black and his friend decide to re-create the films using the townspeople as actors.
Kirsten Dunst still seems to be circling the pic, but there is no official word on her signing just yet.
