The film will not be hiring extras from the community
Memo to all Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill and James Franco fans:
We don’t know if any of these stars will be in Garnerville for tomorrow’s shoot of the Pitt-produced flick “True Story,” but if they will be in North Rockland at all, tomorrow will be the day.
Crew for the film began setting up for Monday, April 8th’s shoot at Sparky’s Diner in Garnerville on Friday. Not too much was changed in the restaurant, but framed photos were affixed on the walls and a large, wooden bear was placed on the west side of the restaurant.
The film, directed by Rupert Goold, is based upon the memoirs of Michael Finkel, a New York Times journalist whose identity was stolen by Christian Longo, a former fugitive who was on the FBI’s Most Wanted List for the murder of his wife and children. Longo will be played by actor James Franco, while Felicity Jones will play Finkel’s girlfriend.
