Long Island Vs Canada
I understand the frustration of seeing a film and a production company abandon the actual locale of the original incident.
But between the unions and the enormous hassles of shooting anywhere in New York...why wouldn't they take a friendlier, more accommodating and efficient route?
Some incredibly great films have been done in New York I'll admit... but you really have to see it from the eyes of the investors, producers and availability of ready and willing talent. And that the logistics of any film undertaking in New York has to be prohibitively expensive and frustrating.
I'd ask DeNiro, Pacino or Woody Allen what they think.
