When director James Brooks asked some pickup dribblers to put their basketball game on hold last weekend on the courts at Westwood's St. Timothy's Church so he could do location shooting, they had this nagging feeling that something was missing. Like permits. And a union crew.
Turns out Brooks was doing a bit of personal experimenting with video images and equipment for some TV news-type inserts for his next Fox film, now untitled and in preproduction--TV news figures prominently in the hush-hush plot. Pals crewed.
No production date yet, but William Hurt will star, with shooting in D.C.
