out of the eye of the storm : FULL GROWN MEN wraps production
S.F. Director David Munro (missing Hurricane Katrina by a swizzle stik) wrapped his Florida production of the upcoming 36-year-old-boy/man-coming-of-age comedy FULL GROWN MEN last week. The film stars Alan Cummings, Amy Sedaris, Matt McGrath and the multi talented seductress-rocker Debbie Harry (confession: I, as everyone else in the 70's, had a crush on "Blondie"). Harry plays, of all things, a delusional ex-Weeki Wachee mermaid named Beauty. I remember Debbie Harry in a 1995 film called HEAVY directed by James Mangold. She can act. Other quirky characters include (in no particular order) a retirement home pool man gigolo, an underworld toy trafficking kingpin retiree, a sociopathic Bible-beating motel night manager...you get the idea. Munro is now back in the city and gearing up for editing and post production. Check out his filmmaker's diary, including contributions by producers Xandra Castleton and Brian Benson in SFGate. I think I'll go have a Mai Tai now.
