They are currently in Michigan filming a movie called Highland Park. According to writer/director/producer Andrew Meieran, Highland Park is about the “quintessential American town.”

Danny Glover stars as a school teacher who wins the lottery, and instead of spending it on luxuries for himself, he puts the money towards the restoration of the shuttered local library.

Deborah_Ann_Woll.0.0.0x0.400x465Art is truly imitating life, in this case, as the town of Highland Park is truly hoping to reopen their McGregor Library. The story in the film will mirror the local people’s ongoing efforts since McGregor Library was closed in 2002. With all the economic activity from the movie being filmed there, and some of earnings at the box office being contributed, the people of Highland Park might be able to rebuild their library and get it running again.

According to IMDb, Deborah will be playing a character named Lilly, Michelle a character named Sylvia, and the rest of the cast includes Prison Break‘s Rockmond Dunbar and Generation Kill‘s Eric Ladin.
