Remember how, a few weeks ago, we had a pencil paparazzi sighting of Jason Segel and a bunch of other marginally famous folks having drinks in Ann Arbor? Well, it looks like some of them may be headed to Ypsilanti next week to continue work on the film that brought them to MIchigan. (It’s called Five Year Engagement.) The following notice, sent from the production team behind the movie, was distributed to local businesses today.
As Michigan’s extremely generous film incentives are being scaled back considerably under our new Governor, this might be your last chance to see someone more famous than the members of Animal Magic in our city, so sharpen up those pencils and get ready to get out there on Washington Street with your sketch pads on Tuesday…. And, if that’s not motivation enough, the best pencil paparazzi sighting will win free tickets to the next episode of the hit local talk show Dreamland Tonight!
Speaking of Dreamland Tonight, since we film on the block where they’ll be shooting, I wonder if there’s a chance that we might be able to lure someone from the cast or crew over for an interview. It doesn’t leave us a lot of time to get ready, but I bet, if we tried, we could get a new episode written and ready to go by June 3.
