: It sounds really intriguing, Joe! What's the basic story? (Sorry if you've already relayed this.)
: And where are you filming again?
Hello just back from the set..got killed today.. *L*
The basic story is Mel plays a widowed French and Indian War veteran with like seven kids who is now a pacifist farmer in South Carolina. His oldest son joins the Continental Army and when the war moves south.. Mel is forced to become a Mititia leader and save the Colonies from the dasterdly British.. especially from one Dragoon commander, "Tavington" based on Banastare Tarleton. It is being filmed on and near My own home historic site "Historic Brattonsville" in York and Chester Co.s here in South Carolina..
Rich, I haven't met any of the people you mentioned.. but I'm not sure what parts they are playing.. lots of other unit stuff going on..if they are townsfolk or something else I probably will never see them..
Well off to shower and a chilled mug of Rum & Cider..Be well.
