"I have seen a script, but I am also aware that scripts can change even as the cameras are rolling. I know that the script changes the location, but most of the major details remain. At this point I am pretty much out of the picture.
As you know, if you've read it, THE NOTE is a parable story--a prodigal daughter story, in fact. The thing that is most important to me is that the aspects of the parable remain true.
And I have one final hope--no matter how the movie differs, I am hoping that the movie will drive sales of the book--because the entire Truth is in the book, and reinforced by the discussion questions.
I have heard--but this may change--that the air date will be Dec. 22. I'll let you know if I hear anything different. I would expect them to be filming any day now, so let's pray for the process.
General Hospital's Luke and Laura--LOL! I never would have believed that "Laura" would be playing "Peyton."
