PrimaryWave Management is close to Uncle Steve's management company in Moz Angeles. Fek ye I reckon they must be trying to capture the Smiths days when Uncle Steve left his home in the San Fernando Valley to go to Brittin with Chrissie Hynde to chase his punk rock dream. I reckon Steve doesn't give a shit about the Smiths so they can do what they want not like that B film that those Brits did STEVEN. I me reckon "upstate New Yoouraaaawk" must be as disgusting and miserable looking as Brittin mate inn n n nn n n it din't in n n it.
Article regarding filming of the OP film with details of locations and film background:
All signs point to Smiths movie: Crew filming in Albany, Troy.
"Shoplifters of the World" is being directed by Stephen Kijak, whose website lists this description of the film:
"1987. Denver, Co. One crazy night in the life of four friends reeling from the demise of iconic British band The Smiths, while the local airwaves are hijacked by an impassioned Smiths fan with a gun."
Neither the event coordinator nor the on-site coordinator listed on the Albany permit responded to requests for comment.
Hudson Valley Casting sent out a call for extras on Oct. 9. The posting said a "1980s"-themed film would be shooting in the Albany area during October and November, and requested some actors have a "Rockabilly or Smiths" hairstyle.
Another online posting for upstate-area extras asks "Smiths-obsessed" actors to put "SMITHS VIGIL" in the subject line of their email application. It also says the band has "completely approved" the project. Online music magazine Pitchfork reported in 2016 that Morrissey had signed off on the film.
