But Kearns isn't the only one who's missing the chance to see the film come to fruition -- screenwriter Philip Railsback died a few years ago. But that's not stopping his unfinished work. The Hollywood Reporter posts that the late writer's brother, Steve Railsback, is planning to bring one of Philip's final scripts to the screen -- a dark comedy called Barstow. Starring Keith Carradine and Scott Wilson, the film focuses on "three desperate characters, one of whom finds hope in a small, depressed town." The screenwriter had penned the script a decade ago, "after living among poor residents of the eponymous California town."
These are just two of a handful of Railsback's scripts that are in development. It's too bad he can't see them come together.
