I’ve been getting a lot of email lately asking about the movie, but truthfully I don’t know much. Here’s what I can tell you.
Filming starts sometime in June, in Toronto. The movie is called How to Deal. It was originally called Someone Like You, but then a movie came out starring Ashley Judd with that title so they had to change it. (And by the way, that movie was really disappointing. I mean, steal my title, but at least do it justice. Just my opinion.)
Mandy Moore has said she’s cutting her hair and going darker for the movie because they want the character to have a punkier look. (I never thought of Halley that way myself, but then again this is Movie Halley. Much different from Book Halley. And that’s okay. Okay? Okay.) The director is British: her first film was Janice Beard: 45 Words Per Minute. And hopefully, hopefully, I’m going to get to go the set sometime this summer, after which I will have all kinds of fun info to give you.
(I am really keeping my fingers crossed about this. I mean, how cool would it be to actually get to go there? I know, I know film sets are boring, blah blah, I don’t care. I just want to go. For even just a day. Or an hour. I’ll stand quietly in the back. I swear.)
When I have more news, I’ll pass it along….
