A comment from Lee on 'Paperboy' Filming

From indieWire - Thompson on Hollywood:
Director Lee Daniels has wrapped his follow-up to Precious, 60s erotic thriller The Paperboy. Shot around New Orleans, Lousiana, with Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron, Nicole Kidman, John Cusack, David Oyelowo, Macy Gray and Scott Glenn, the film is based on Pete Dexter’s novel and subsequent screen adaptation. Set in Florida, the synopsis is below. Release dates are pending as Toronto-generated pre-sales continue. As Daniels heads into post-production, he praises his cast for bringing “these offbeat characters to life. Everyone has knocked it out of the ballpark with their performances.”

There is also a summary at the source, but it is kind of a weird write-up so I'm skipping it.

I'm glad to hear there was some action at Toronto, I was hoping for that.
