Richard Linklater has been filming Bernie, the story of foppish murderer Bernie Tiede in recent weeks in Bastrop (including a day at Spiderwood Studios) and Carthage--the spot of the murder of an 81-year-old woman whose body was stashed in a freeze for many months.
Interesting note not included in this article, which includes info about Matthew McConaughey shooting a scene: My source says Shirley MacLaine has received a number of letters from Tiede in which he proclaims his innocence. The actress is also said to be very impressed with Jack Black's portrayal of Tiede.
Also, is it true that Rip Torn was fired from the show? Send me your tips from the set...
