Details on “Building a Better Boy” DCOM from an article written in May 2013:
Brink Productions in association with RCR Pictures are currently gearing up to begin production on the Disney Channel Original Movie “Building a Better Boy”. The Casting Society of America ARTIOS Award nominated casting directors for the movie are auditioning talent for the starring, co-starring, and supporting roles. Several teen roles are being cast as well as adult roles. The extras and stand-ins will be cast closer to the start of filming in late July, 2013. Shooting will take place in Toronto. “Building a Better Boy” centers on a group of teenage geniuses who hijack an android prototype from their father’s lab and program it to be the world’s most perfect boyfriend, unaware that it’s armed with a nuclear weapon.
Two-time Directors Guild of America DGA Award winner Paul Hoen will direct “Building a Better Boy” from a teleplay written by Jason Mayland. Hoen is a long time Disney Channel director who has been at the helm on such Disney Channel Original Movies as “Jump In!” and “Luck of the Irish” which on first airing were the Disney Channel’s highest rated programs. Other credits include “The Cheetah Girls: One World,” “Dadnapped,” “Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam,” “Let It Shine,” and the recently completed “Cloud 9”.
So, Miss China Anne (“A.N.T. Farm”), Kelli Berglund (“Lab Rats”), Matt Shively and Ashley Argota (“True Jackson, VP”) seem to be working on this new DCOM together!
