‘Glory Days’ for Bailey

Thesp joins dark comedy, lensing begins in November

Eion Bailey will star in “Glory Days,” the directing bow of writer Barra Grant.

The dark comedy concerns a group of friends who devise an intervention for their hard-drinking friend, but plans go awry when the appointed shrink fails to show up.

“Glory Days” will be shot in November in Los Angeles on a budget of less than $5 million, with private financing. Brian Reilly and Mark Gordon produce.

Project’s history stretches back more than five years, when it was set up at Warner Bros. Pictures with Robert Zemeckis attached to direct.

Repped by the Gersh Agency, Grant has done uncredited rewrites on a number of pics, including “Cheer Up” and “Steinbeck’s Point of View.”

Bailey, repped by ICM and managed by the Susan Smith Co., most recently appeared in HBO’s “And Starring Pancho Villa as Himself” and wrapped Ken Kwapis’ “Sexual Life.”
