: : Hello, all...
: : Just wondering if any vets of the Mohican shoot are lining up for Mel Gibson's "The Patriot". I've heard all sorts of stuff about it, and am wondering if anyone actually KNOWS anything about it...
: : Thanks!
: Yes! Soldier #2 is going to be in the movie, for sure. In fact, he should have returned last night from his first(?) jaunt down to SC ... maybe we'll hear from him soon! I know he has to return on Monday. Odds are, there would be others.
Rich & Paul,
I read tonight that Mel is playing a FICTIONAL character, "LOOSELY based on Francis Marion." How historically accurate THAT will be, who knows...but I guess he's not really playing The Swamp Fox, himself. I also read they had to drain the cypress swamp/reserve at S. Carolina's Cypress Gardens to look for any obstacles that would be dangerous to the horses when they film them riding into the swamp.
