Daniel Pearle’s stage play A KID LIKE JAKE is headed to the big screen, and Claire is set to star in the film along with actor Jim Parsons. The information comes from Variety, and you can read about the screenplay.
The screenplay, written by Daniel Pearle, centers on a husband and wife trying to do right by their son. Alex and her husband, Greg want only the best for their precocious 4-year-old, Jake. When they apply to New York City private schools, part of what makes Jake special – his passion for Cinderella and dress-up – starts to cause concern.
Parsons is also producing the film, alongside Todd Spiewak, via That’s Wonderful Productions, with Eric Norsoph. Double Nickel is executive producing.
