Movie producers land in Saline

I hope you all read the story in last week's paper about the rather big news here in Saline. (actually, due to a production glitch, it ran twice). Drew Barrymore's production company, Flower Films, has set up shop in the city to use as a base during filming of "Whip It," a movie about a teenage girl who finds the meaning of life by joining a roller derby league.
Folks at city hall, who are helping coordinate the location, are tight-lipped, concerned that we'll all get nutty about having celebs in town. Now, I don't think we're the type, do you? Come on now. We won't slam on the brakes at the four corners when we see someone with a big camera crossing the street. We won't crash our cart in aisle four of Busch's if we spot a west-coaster behind dark glasses looking for olive oil. We'll be helpful, considerate, friendly. Just like always. Right? Right.
Watch this blog for any information. As soon as we hear anything, we'll post it here.
Have a great summer. Be kind to one another and keep those arms (and eyes) wide open.

Any idea how to find out about possible jobs related to the production of this film? If I read it right that is the point of the big tax breaks offered by the State of MI, creating jobs (actually on-the-job training) for MI residents. Thanks for posting any news regarding this.
