So how long has "Kinison" been kicking around? We first reported on it way back in 2008 when it was set up over at HBO with "American Splendor" team Shari Springer Bergman and Robert Pulcini tapped to adapt the book "Brother Sam" by the comedian's sibling Bill Kinison, with Tom Shadyac ("Bruce Almighty," "Liar Liar") set to the direct with Dan Fogler in the lead role. All was silent until a couple of years later, when it was revealed Shadyac was still attached, and he currently is— although only as a producer. A new writer, director and star are now moving the project along.
