Bahrani cast update and sightings around town  
From Deadline:
Kim Dickens has been cast in a lead role alongside Dennis Quaid and Zac Efron in Killer Films' Heartland, which revolves around a traditional father (Quaid) who wishes for his race-car driver son (Efron) to take over the family-run seed business in Iowa, a tale that includes racing and illegal goings-on. Dickens will play the mother, Irene.

I'm not sure that Heartland is an up-to-date name. It was called that in March but they had dropped the title by the end of April. So either they decided to use the name after all or it's old info. Hard to say since it isn't updated anywhere else, but perhaps it is in the recent Production Weekly. We'll have to wait and see. To me, it doesn't feel gritty enough to fit the story. This isn't a sweet story really.

Zac and Dennis have been hanging out in Sycamore and doing things that seem to be prep for filming. ~rehearsal~ if you will. I'm only including a few because tbh, it is really difficult to tell what is b.s. and what is legit and what is private or kind of their prep. But in summary, what seems to be legit, he's been to Walgreens, Kohl's, Dairy Queen, a showing of Bad Teacher, and I guess Walmart.

A few twitters and fb:

Eating together at a place called Cabana Charley's

LOL this dude all huffy(eta**) about a pic...

But on FB, so chill...

Later the cops apparently have to show up and they have to run...

And, if this is correct... he's driving around a Mitsubishi EVO, a car often modded for racing, fits his character of course.

Like this:

**ETA: for the record, Dan twittered at me and says he intended sarcasm.

It's too bad that most some of the town is so over-the-top in stalking him. Truer words were never spoken:

I really feel bad for the people of Dekalb who want to meet him and be sane about it...because the actions of others are making it more difficult for them. I just saw a tweet that the cops had to turn people away who wanted to wait outside the hotel for him because someone managed to sneak in yesterday...

Like, really?! And some of the other "info" being floated around...don't even go there.

Either way I hope rehearsal and filming can be much more peaceful than the past few days...

Ha. We basically said the same thing.

Absolutely agree.

I guess they let him drive that car to be ~in character~.

And the town is seriously crazy. I've seen so many people declaring that they are stalking him, waiting at his hotel or similar, it's insane. But worse, some of them feel like they own Zac and he has to be at their beck-and-call 24/7.

I hope they can film halfway in peace.

This one takes the cake, I think...other than the obvious from earlier today.

"My friends and I are gonna go look for him...we gat da plate number wen we saw him lmfao"

I can't even....it's sad that he can't get one iota of privacy in a town so small. This probably makes LA and the paps look like heaven

The spelling, the sentiments... the RANDOM "lmfao" (wtf is funny?!).

I purposely didn't edit for grammar purely for the LOL's

As Howard from Big Bang Theory would say "that is an indictment of the American education system"

Omg, this is a new personal meme. WE GOT DA PLATE NUMBER.

Someone wants to see the receipts? Fine. WE GOT DA PLATE NUMBER!

I'm still confused as to what this movie is about lol

Ugh I hope things lighten up once they start filming so they can actually work. It's almost a shame this had to film during the summer because school is out so there's a ton of kids with nothing to do except stalk Zef. sigh.

I'm sure he's enjoying that car though.

I think it's about a guy who wants his son to work on his farm but he wants to be a race car driver instead?

I'm surprised (maybe surprised isn't the best word?) people are showing out so early? I feel like I want the folks of NOLA to give tips on how to play it cool! Po-po should not be involved/called. Respect yourselves! ;)

I tend to give most celebs a simple benefit of the doubt when encountering fans outside events/sets/work places. I know they are highly recognizable, but it boils down to time and place.

Walgreens, Kohl's, Dairy Queen, a showing of Bad Teacher, and I guess Walmart.

Dear lord are they ALL UP IN the Mid-West (can't hate, born and raised in the Mid-West)! That sentence just struck a chord, lol.

I doubt it's all just Dekalb stalking talent. It's just so close to Chicago and it's summer with nothing better to do.

so far, from what i can tell, this is all locals just based on profiles etc.

"So me jesse and delaney just met zach efron and denis quade."

The grammar is killing me. And, as I've said before, if they can't spell the names right, they should be banned from Twitter (or whatever social media they are using).
The Writers Denmusewriter on July 14th, 2011 04:32 am (UTC)
As I said on my Twitter, every one of these people should foot the bill if the police are using overtime to deal with this, and if Bahrani ends up needing to hire additional security.

This whole town just needs to

Well that took longer than I expected but the plate number has now been publicized.

I'm ashamed for humanity right now, tbh.

You know when female animals are ready to mate and they put out a smell so the male animals go nuts over them?

It is like this is happening on that town.

People in DeKalb need to calm down. If this madness keeps up they won't ever have celebrities there again. All of this just makes the local people look bad.

If Zac really is driving that racecar type car thats kind of cool.
Do you think we'll get pictures from the race track on Saturday?
