Playing Kearns' wife, Phyllis, is Lauren Graham. Her character will likely be the typical, frustrated wife of an obsessed man we've seen in countless films of this kind (for the most recent, see Chloë Sevigny in Zodiac). Graham has similar duty, though less seriously, in Evan Almighty, which bows next week. Flash of Genius will be the first film directed by producer Marc Abraham (Children of Men), who also co-wrote the script with Phillip Railsback (The Stars Fell on Henrietta) and Scott Frank (Minority Report). It is based on a 1993 New Yorker article by John Seabrook, which Abraham bought the rights to eight years ago. The problem with waiting so long to get the film into production is that now Kearns has passed away and won't get to see how well Kinnear portrays him. Flash of Genius begins shooting next month in Toronto.
