Lili Taylor, who counts "Six Feet Under," and "Say Anything," among her many credits and Amy Madigan of "Field of Dreams," and who was Oscar-nominated for "Twice in a Lifetime," are due in town later this month to shoot "Future Weather," an indie film that on Monday starts its five-week shoot in the area.
The drama, about a young girl obsessed with helping the environment who is abandoned by her mother, stars 13-year-old Perla Haney-Jardine, and also features Marin Ireland and veteran actor William Sadler.
Producer Kristin Fairweather says she and writer/director Jenny Deller have partnered with local businesses to have a sustainable film set including full of organic, locally-sourced food. Deller's screenplay is currently in the semi-finals of the Nicholl Fellowship. In April the film won a $40,000 Alfred P. Sloan grant from the Tribeca Film Institute which stages the Tribeca Film Festival.
