Book to Film in Washtenaw County
Drew Barrymore's movie Whip It! is set to be filmed around here this summer, so local people are needed as extras, according to The Ann Arbor News. The movie is based on the novel Derby Girl by Shauna Cross, who wrote the screenplay, and who also belongs to the Los Angeles Derby Dolls. I'm thinking strong roller-skating skills might be in demand here. Just a guess.
