Tim Blake Nelson to Star in ‘The True Don Quixote’

Tim Blake Nelson to Star in ‘The True Don Quixote’
Tim Blake Nelson is starring as the title character in the movie “The True Don Quixote,” a modern-day version based on the classic novel by Miguel de Cervantes.

Shooting began Monday near New Orleans with Chris Poche (“Over The Hedge”) directing from his own script. Jacob Batalon (“Spiderman: Homecoming”) is co-starring as Sancho Panza.

Producers are Trey Burvant through Charthouse Films and Jason Waggenspack through his Neutral Ground Films.

The story is centered on a man who’s safe and comfortable and bored to death with his life. In his state of despair, the stories of passion and pain change his mind until he awakens insane, anointing himself as Don Quixote to find adventure, fame and glory that will make his life worthwhile — while never leaving his one-mile square neighborhood.

Don Quixote,” published in two parts in 1605 and 1615, centers on a Spanish nobleman who loses his sanity as he seeks to revive chivalry.

Louisiana’s Production Surge Extends Benefits to Foodie Culture

Louisiana’s Production Surge Extends Benefits to Foodie Culture
Ten years ago it was Katrina. Five years later came the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Both disasters profoundly impacted Louisiana’s restaurant businesses. But today the state and New Orleans have bounced back.

The recovery parallels the growth of production. “Anything good for the economy is good for the culinary scene,” says chef and restaurateur John Besh, also the star of PBS’s “Chef John Besh’s New Orleans.”

“The film industry has added a dimension to New Orleans that wasn’t there before,” he notes. While production catering companies are an obvious beneficiary, Besh sees a trickle-down effect to both legacy establishments and newcomers. His American Cafe at the National World War II Museum has received support form Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks and Tom Brokaw.

Besh adds that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been known to drop in at local po’boy sandwich shops.
