, who was set to helm in his pilot directing debut, had to pull out because of scheduling issues with Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman movie, in which Affleck plays Batman. While Warner Bros. recently pushed the release date for the movie from 2015 to 2016, word is that production is not being delayed and the main players have been summoned to start work right away.
Additionally, I hear Affleck has other film commitments in the spring, when The Middle Man
pilot is scheduled to shoot. Casting on Middle Man
had been well under way with auditions already scheduled. That now has been put on hold until Fox brass figure out a course of action.
and it's from Deadline.
The thing is that no one really knew when production was to start in the first place. It was as vague as the first quarter of this year and now seems like sometime this spring. Even that Deadline article can not nail down a specific date and just because you have been summoned to go to work right away does not indicate what date you are supposed to start.
