Principal Photography begins on Bahrani pic, set photo, new cast member  

LOL short prep, you can say that again. Though I really think Zac was working on his character while still in Los Angeles. Heather Graham is, ofc, new information... possibly for the role of Meredith? Slight Spoiler: Meredith is an old friend of Henry's and she gets around, iykwim, lol And I'm guessing given the first status, that the film is actually still untitled.




ETA another couple pics from KCCI Des Moines:

Also there was this comment on the script.

And yet again, apparent craziness lol...

Heather Graham? That's awesome! Always liked her since Lost in Space and Austin Powers. :) What role is Meredith? I'm really impressed that you already got your hands on the script.

By the way, if there's only on racing scene in the movie, will it be for the movie's ending/climax? That may be a little spoiler-ish.

Can't wait for more pictures to come out!

No, the racing scene is in the middle. And Cady will add a short description for Meredith to the post soon.

Oh, thanks. Because of the report that Dennis will be cheering for Zac in that scene, I was thinking of a typical happy family drama ending. :)

i added a brief bit about her character above since i can't do blacking out for spoilers in comments anymore (i guess css isn't allowed anymore?).

So she's playing someone related to Dennis' side of story..

At first I thought it'll be mostly about the four family members. Now there's Zac's girlfriend, Dennis' female friend etc.. the cast is expanding. Are there more major characters to be cast except Zac's older brother?

Actually, Dean's older brother is absent in the movie (from what I can tell); it's part of the plot.

And as a side note, this is by no means a happy family movie. Bahrani is known for his neo-realism and the movie fits right into this category.

As for your other question - there are obviously still a bunch of characters to come. I would consider Dean's BFF Torgesen as a reasonably biggish role (although it's by no means a lead). Personally, I do expect an unknown for this character but I did for Meredith too (which btw is not a major role), so who knows.

I wasn't expecting a name for Meredith but she works well for the role.

And I love that we actually got word from official sources that they start filming today (and weren't in Hinckley for the last few days). All the misinformation drove me nuts even though it was obvious that they weren't filming.

This makes me happy to see them filming the racing scenes, and Zac Efron in a race suit is amazing.

I like how the open letter is written to "Zach". GTFO.

SO excite that he's on set and filming. I felt bad when I read the "Goodbye sleep" tweet- so true!

That guy also said "Zach, you're lucky I didn't see you..I had some things to say. I woulda made you cry, bitch"

If anything, this shoot sure has been filled with classic Facebook and Twitter posts lol
