Novi residents debut in Hollywood film

By Kelly Murad • Staff Writer • September 26, 2008

When Drew Barrymore’s upcoming film “Whip It!” debuts, Novi residents might recognize the familiar faces of fellow community members Paul and Sharon Thal on the big screen.

Novi residents of 35 years, the couple recently spent a Saturday afternoon working as extras on the set of Barrymore’s movie, centered around roller derby, which was filmed in Michigan.

Thanks to the Michigan Film Incentive, which went into effect in April, more and more projects are choosing the Great Lakes State for filming their productions.
