Brad Pitt, George Clooney Will Read Play Based On Prop 8 Live Tonight

Posted By on Sat, Mar 3, 2012 at 6:00 AM

Screenwriter Dustin Lance Black is no stranger to LGBT issues. He penned the script for the Clint Eastwood-directed J. Edgar, and won an Academy Award for writing Milk, the Gus Van Sant-directed biopic about slain gay politician Harvey Milk.

With Black's new play, 8, he's turning his focus to the topic of same-sex marriage, and more specifically, to the infamous ballot measure in California that attempted to overturn it, Proposition 8.

Black based 8 on transcripts for the trial and firsthand interviews.

An A-list cast including Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Martin Sheen, Kevin Bacon, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jane Lynch, John C. Reilly and George Takei will read the play during a live webcast at 8:30 p.m MST on Saturday, March 3.

The live stream will be available via YouTube at afer.org.
