Film producer Dean Zanuck his arranged for his latest film project, "Get Low," to be part of the film's release today at the Magic Lantern Cinemas in Ketchum. Zanuck has been a part-time Sun Valley resident since he was a kid. He wanted the valley to have a chance to see the film first.
"It's nice to have an opportunity to share 'Get Low' with Sun Valley because there are so many people I know in Sun Valley who would love to see this film," Zanuck said. "It has had a limited release."
The film stars Robert Duvall, Bill Murray, Lucas Black, Bill Cobbs and Sissy Spacek.
Zanuck said the film was a low-budget and labor-of-love project, which took nine years to complete. He said all the actors sacrificed a great deal to make the film.
"Get Low" was inspired by the true story of Felix "Bush" Breazeale, who attracted national attention when he threw himself a living funeral party in 1938 in Roane County, Tenn.
