Perhaps looking to break out from the glut of family-friendly roles he has taken over the last decade or so, Tim Allen is settling himself into the director’s chair of the indie comedy Crazy On The Outside. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the script follows “an ex-con who finds his life outside of prison to be much crazier, especially once he enters his sister’s world.”
In addition to directing the film, the Reporter story states that Allen will also star in the picture. Currently in negotiation for roles are Ray Liotta, Carrie-Anne Moss, Kelsey Grammer and today’s birthday girl Julie Bowen. Sounds like an interesting line up, but since there’s no distributor signed on yet, who knows when we’ll see it.
