Parker in focus for studio film
By Lisa Roose-Church • DAILY PRESS & ARGUS • September 23, 2008
The Howell Public Schools Parker Campus may be mostly shuttered, but it could open to "students" if a deal to film an upcoming movie is inked.
Producers of the film "High School" hope to begin filming Nov. 3 on the estimated $9.5 million film, which producers hope will star William H. Macy as the principal, but no deal with the actor has been inked.
After initial reservations due to the movie's content — described as adult content with a humorous look at illegal substances — the school district's Board of Education authorized its superintendent and assistant superintendent of business to enter into negotiations with producers.
