Rain Man changes directer

David Grindley, director of the Apollo’s forthcoming production Rain Man, has been forced to pull out of the project due to family reasons and has been replaced by Terry Johnson.

Hollywood screen star Josh Hartnett will make his West End debut in the premiere stage adaptation of the 1988 Oscar-winning film Rain Man, which opens on 9 September 2008 (previews from 28 August) at the Apollo Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, where it’s booking for a limited season to 20 December.

Hartnett will play Charlie Babbitt, the part taken on screen by Tom Cruise, with British stage actor Adam Godley as Raymond, his autistic savant brother, the part for which Dustin Hoffman won a Best Actor at the Oscars. The film also numbered amongst its four Academy Awards the all-important prize of Best Picture.
