I received an email from a fellow shop owner from Smithville Texas the other day and she said they are making another film there. Apparently, Brad Pitt and Sean Penn will star in the movie. I asked her if she'd seen Brad yet and she said no, but she had heard that he was in town. She did say that the decorators are in the shops buying like crazy for the film, which is always a good thing for them. Reminds me of an article that Victoria Magazine featured about this movie, where the stylists went out and bought antiques at Sue Balmforth's shop; I'd love to have been the one that then got first dibs at what they didn't want to take back with them to Hollywood.
Yep, I'd star in a movie with him!!
Check out Smithville if you are near there, there are some great Antique Shops in that town. Here are some past pictures of some of the shops:
They are filming right down the street from where Hope Floats was filmed. Who knows maybe you could be in the movie!!
