Hollywood does Libraries

Eric just sent me a link to the Hollywood Reporter:
Estevez goes 'Public'
Here's a clip from the press release:

Estevez is prepping "The Public," a social drama set in a public library that he wrote and will direct as his follow-up to "Bobby."

The story is loosely based on a Los Angeles Times op-ed piece written by Chip Ward, a retiring librarian in Salt Lake City, which discussed the epidemic issue of libraries becoming de facto shelters for the homeless and the mentally ill in light of many social program cuts.

I am sure it will be more in-depth (and less stereotypical) than The Librarian!
