ACTOR KEVIN BACON will appear at the world premiere of "He Said, She Said," the movie that was shot on location in and around Crabtown last summer.
The screening, which will benefit the Johns Hopkins Children's Center, will be preceded by a champagne reception at the Senator Theatre Feb. 11 with the customary sidewalk shenanigans under the marquee kicking off at 6:30 p.m.
Although co-star Elizabeth Perkins of "Big" and "Avalon" fame will not be attending, the movie's directors (and real-life couple) Marisa Silver and Ken Kwapis will be on hand.
The story is described as a breezy comedy about two newspaper columnists (some of the movie was shot at The Sun) turned broadcast co-anchors. They fall in love, but don't agree on anything. Boy, does that sound familiar.
Tickets are $50 and dress is business attire. For tickets, call 955-8767.
REEL PEOPLE: They're pulling some stunts at East Coast Pictures -- literally! Gentlemen and Scholars Productions, in conjunction with Virtus Stunts, an organization of professional stuntmen across the United States, is using the Baltimore studio to produce a two-minute thriller designed to draw attention to the need for professional stuntmen in videotapes and film.
Jeff Wilhelm and Mick Kipp of Virtus Stunts stress the importance of using professionals for safety. "Knowing how to take a fall, burn up, drown, etc., can save time and money on a shoot," they say.
The Baltimore Film Factory's Rob Treganza, whose locally shot movie, "The Arc," was accepted into the Berlin Film Festival, will direct the short. Filming begins this spring at the East Coast Pictures studios.
