1. X may mark the spot in the Coastal Empire. X-Men movie looking to shoot in or around Savannah.
The buzz has been buzzing for quite some time about the latest “X-Men” Motion picture shooting in our area. Locations have been scouted, researched, offers have been made, negotiations and rumors swirl like Kristi Yamaguchi after drinking five Red Bulls, but nothing is official yet. Why? Well, apparently there are a lot of details and planning that go into a mega-motion picture (who’da thunk it?). Define mega? The X-Men series to date has generated a box office revenue of a billion (yes B) and a half dollars. That’s a lot of popcorn. Well, maybe not that much considering what they charge for popcorn at the movies now days. Regardless, the players involved locally are hopeful we land this tuna and add it to our motion picture resume. One doesn’t exactly think of Coastal Georgia being a prime place for a sci-fi flick, but what do I know? I’m still afraid to put my digital camera through the X-ray machine at the airport for fear it will spoil my pictures.
