Hollywood stars film comedy in Cave Creek
MARC BUCKHOUT ~ MANAGING EDITOR ~ 6/2/2010
Queens of Country, an independent comedy starring Lizzy Caplan and Ron Livingston have spent the last month filming in Cave Creek and Carefree.
Queens of Country is led by Caplan’s character, Jolene Gillis, who lives in a fantasy world of old time country stars and western style. Gillis, the prettiest girl in a small Arizona town, finds an iPod filled with songs that speak to her sensitive heart. Convinced the iPod’s owner is her soul mate, she dives into a heartwarming and hilarious adventure of mistaken identities, ATVs, line dancing competitions, kidnappers, time machines and doppelgangers all leading up to one of the most surprising twists since The Crying Game.
Caplan’s movie history includes Mean Girls, Hot Tub Time Machine and True Blood while Livingston’s career highlights include Office Space, Band of Brothers, Sex and the City and Swingers.
The film is co-directed by Ryan Page and Christopher Pomerenke, the successful music documentarians behind films Moog, Blood Into Wine and The Heart Is A Drum Machine. Filming began on May 3 with The Buffalo Chip serving as one of the main sights.
