The 1990s was a good time to be a John Grisham fan. For a decade or so, the author had many of his novels successfully adapted. From The Client, A Time to Kill, The Firm, to even Robert Altman’s shaggy but atmospheric The Gingerbread Man, Hollywood was making some good dramas with Grisham’s material, and audiences were responding to them. Another memorable Grisham adaptation is The Rainmaker, which opened in theaters almost 17 years ago. Francis Ford Coppola‘s film starred Matt Damon and Danny DeVito as a pair of lawyers, and their performances are what stands out the most about Coppola’s adaptation. Now, CBS is planning a new take on The Rainmaker from creator/executive producer Michael Seitzman (Code Black) and executive producer Brett Mahoney (former co-showrunner of The Following).
