In September Fox made a series commitment to Gotham, a new live-action show that will follow the adventures of a young Detective James Gordon. Now, Feature Film Casting has put out a casting call for a 10-year-old Bruce Wayne for the show and it would be a regular role. The pilot starts filming in March.
According to the site:
“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 the villains that made Gotham City famous. Under development for over a year, the project has now 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.”
That would match up with what Bleeding Cool reported last week about Gordon trying to solve the double homicide of the Waynes in the first episode.
The site also reports that Bruno Heller (Rome, The Mentalist) will be a writer as well as an executive producer for the show.
