Gone Girl, staring Ben Aflec, Rosemund Pike, Tyler Perry and Neil Patrick Harris, is being filmed in my hometown. I attended the casting call, but so far, no call..... that's okay, I'm pretty busy... LOL. Ben Aflec has been seen about town a few times and is very gracious to take pictures and sign autographs for people. It's going to be fun to see the familiar places of our town, on the big screen with these big stars!
Here's a picture of Ben and the daughter of the folks who own the Casa Mexicana, where my sisters and I meet, every Wednesday night.... We should have met the following Monday....... "missed 'em by THAT much!" LOL~!
:cool: Oh, I hope they call you. They don't know what they're
missing. LOL! I bought the book several months ago on
the basis of 1500 reviews on Amazon. I can't seem to
get into it. I loaned it to a friend who said it was great.
When she returned it I tried again to read it but still
couldn't do it. Maybe I'll give it one more try. Now that
I know there will be a movie that I will want to see, if
only because they are filming it in your town, I might
be able to read the book.
Sending a message to the casting people to call you quick
before you become too involved in something else.
Hey, darling Dreamer! HAHAHA! They have no idea what they are missing, indeed! LOL!
I have found that sometimes, books can only be read at the right time. It was that way for me, with "Stranger In A Strange Land." A couple friends tried to read "Stranger In A Strange Land" and could not get into it. I had no trouble getting into it, right away, even though, as with "The Hobbit," the first 1/8 or so, had to be glanced over, as barely, esential to the story. A few years ago, I tried to read it again, but could not.... So keep the book and try again, maybe it just wasn't the right time.
My mother read "Gone Girl" and was offended at how the town in the book, was described as depressed and not very seemly.... LOL, we had to remind her that the author was not discribing our town, but a fictional town, set on the banks of the Mississippi River.
I think they are supposed to finish filming, the middle of this month, but I'll let you know, if I get the call. HA!
