Last week Harvey Weinstein visited the set of "The Great Debaters," which stars Forest Whitaker and Denzel Washington (director).
Since Harvey's movie du jour, Michael Moore's "Sicko," wasn't scheduled for a weekend release in the Shreveport-Bossier City market, he decided to give cast and crew a private screening.
Weinstein rented out a theater at Shreveport's Tinseltown this past Sunday and shipped in a print for such purposes.
This little tidbit might give followers of Moore a little hope that "Sicko" will make it to this market. Who knows?
It's not scheduled to come this weekend, but I'll keep you posted.
And, hey, Harvey! Next time around why not put your favorite movie reporter on the guest list?
Thanks for the tip, K.S.
