The Kid & I: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tom Arnold's screenplay The Kid & I is coming alive in front of cameras this week in Los Angeles with Arnold starring alongside Shannon Elizabeth, Linda Hamilton, Richard Edson, Joe Mantegna and newcomer Eric Gores for helmer Penelope Spheeris.
The indie project stars Gores as Aaron Roman, a 17-year-old with cerebral palsy who dreams of being in an action movie. His wealthy entrepreneur father (Mantegna) tells Aaron he can have anything he wants for his 18th birthday, only to have to hustle to get the movie made.
Arnold stars as an out-of-work actor who collaborates with Aaron on the new project. Elizabeth will play Aaron's stepmother with Hamilton starring as the ex-wife of Arnold's character. Edson rounds out the cast as a homeless man-turned-assistant.
