COME ON, admit it, it's been a while but you loved it back then.
I only just very recently became aware that it's being made into a film and now filming notices are posted all over the Upper West Side. On Monday I ran into two different sections of street (along Amsterdam and Broadway) being prepared for filming this week.
The movie stars Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock, James Gandolfini, and John Goodman, among others--so it seems this movie is going to be slightly bigger than 2005's Everything is Illuminated. The film comes out sometime next year.
