On the Brink Productions in association with RCR Pictures are currently gearing up to begin production on the Disney Channel Original Movie Building a Better Boy.
The Casting Society of America ARTIOS Award nominated casting directors for the movie have sent out Disney casting calls and are auditioning talent for the starring, co-starring, and supporting roles. Several teen roles are being cast as well as adult roles. The extras and stand-ins will be cast closer to the start of filming in late July, 2013. Shooting will take place in Toronto.
The story follows Gabby and Kat who are a pair of super-smart high school students, two best friends who can’t scare up a date between them, probably because they scare boys off. After they conspire with Kat’s brother Bart to hijack their father’s latest piece of research and program an android prototype into becoming the World’s Most Perfect Boyfriend, Kat has a new beau for herself, a 17 year old dreamboat named Albert who is thoughtful, athletic, caring, smart, doting, charming, loveable – and armed with a nuclear weapon that could go off at any second if Kat pushes the wrong button. Weird Science meets Real Genius.
Two-time Directors Guild of America DGA Award winner Paul Hoen will direct “Building a Better Boy” from a teleplay written by Jason Mayland. Hoen is a long time Disney Channel director who has been at the helm on such Disney Channel Original Movies as “Jump In!” and “Luck of the Irish” which on first airing were the Disney Channel’s highest rated programs. Other credits include “The Cheetah Girls: One World,” “Dadnapped,” “Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam,” “Let It Shine,” and the recently completed “Cloud 9”.
The production company On the Brink Productions is owned by Donald Mink, who also owns It’s a Laugh Productions – a subsidiary of the Disney-ABC Television Group. It’s a Laugh Productions has produced such Disney Channel shows as “Wizards of Waverly Place,” “Hannah Montana,” “Shake It Up!”, “Jessie,” “Kickin’ It”, “Good Luck Charlie,” “Pack of Wolves,” “Liv & Maddie,” “Girl Meets World,” and “A.N.T.
