We don't know if Project Runway will ever return to small screens, especially now that yet another lawsuit's been set in motion, nor do we know whether it will ever return to it's once glorious place if it does indeed come back to life, but here's a fun fact: Looks like that copycat version Bravo's trying out, Fashion House, really is happening since they've posted the dates for their nationwide casting call (full details after the jump) on their site. On a side note, does anyone else think it's weird that the GenArt site's linked at the end of the application rules for the show? Does this mean they're helping with the castings, just like with seasons one and three of Project Runway? Because then, well, this Adventures in Copyrights might have a chance.
