Warner Bros. reports are unfounded

By Leslie Shepard-Owsley - Spinal Column Newsweekly

August 27, 2008 - The media frenzy reporting that Warner Bros. studios toured the now shuttered Ford Wixom Plant last week for a second look as a potential site may be nothing more than rumor, according to sources from Ford, the city and the Michigan Film Office.

Though the filmmaker giant had formerly shown some interest in the vacated premises four months ago, city officials have not heard a word since, according to City Manager Mike Dornan. While it is altogether possible that Warner Bros. independently drove by the facility without informing city officials or the Michigan Film Office, no one from either office could confirm such reports.
