This week was all about a trip back to my roots in Hometown, Illinois not only to scout locations for GUYS NIGHT but to reconnect with family, friends, neighbors and ... the Mayor. The trip was a resounding success and we were able to secure several key locations for the film, including the Our Lady of Loretto church/school complex which is the actual place I grew up with and wrote about in the script! Everyone in town is excited about the prospects of Hollywood coming to the neighborhood. I explored retail establishments, parks, the department of public works, the old bike trails (smaller, but still there!), and the amusement park where my brothers and I used to hang out.
