The Last of Robin Hood starring Susan Sarandon, Kevin Kline, and Dakota Fanning has been shooting in the Atlanta area.. they are actually still shooting for a few more days, but here's the coolest part - they filmed a few scenes at my condo building. So the whole crew took over our place for 2 days. The building I live in is from the 1940s and this movie takes place in the '50s. I did get to briefly meet the stars of the show and because the directors, Wash Westmoreland and Richard Glatzer, are two of the nicest guys I've met in this business, I got a bit part in the film as the receptionist in a posh NYC hotel. Period pieces may be my new fav films - great costumes, hair, and make-up.
Storyline from IMDb:
The Last of Robin Hood is the true story of Beverly Aadland (Dakota Fanning), a teen starlet who became the last girlfriend of legendary swashbuckler Errol Flynn (Kevin Kline). In 1957, Beverly was working at Warner Brothers studios with a fake birth certificate saying she was 18 -- she was in fact, only 15 -- when she encountered the former matinée idol. After a bumpy start, the two undertook a relationship that was ultimately embraced by Beverly's Hollywood mother Florence (Susan Sarandon), who became a willing third wheel. The affair took them from L.A. to New York to Africa, then to Cuba where Flynn pitched in with the rebels to make a pro-Castro propaganda movie starring Beverly. It all came crashing to an end in Vancouver, however, when Flynn died in Beverly's arms, causing an avalanche of publicity; Florence finally achieved the attention she sought in the form of tabloid notoriety but the chaos drove Beverly to the edge of sanity.
