In some slightly surprising news, it’s been confirmed that Fox’s Gotham show, currently in development, is looking to cast the role of a 10-year-old Bruce Wayne as a series regular. TV Show Auditions has the scoop.
The site announced, “A 10-year-old Bruce Wayne is among the roles that are now being cast as series regulars on the upcoming Fox TV series “Gotham” which explores the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon and then villains that made Gotham City famous. Under development for over a year, the project has been given a direct-to-series order by the network, which won an intense bidding war for the Warner Bros. Television rights to the show. Shooting on the pilot episode will get underway in March, 2014 and will center on Gotham City PD rookie homicide detective James Gordon who investigates the double murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne.”
It’s been seen as a regular problem, getting Batman to the small-screen when he’s also in huge blockbuster movies. How do you get around that? Well it appears you take a younger approach and take things right back to basics. Interesting concept. Whether it will work, we’ll have to wait and find out.
Expect more on this as it develops.
