hey guys, just got back from newnan and boy do they need to clean that place up. rocks all over the street, cars flipped upside down, a friggin tank in the middle of the road and posters warning of the apocalypse strewn all over town! very elaborate set for me to pretty much have free access to for about an hour. got some incredible photos which ill post shortly. got there around 2pm, walked the set and shot photos until about 3pm. decided to try and find the base camp and hung out there with brandon and a few other fans. we were told that woody harrelson was there and so was jesse eisenberg. well we made the best of the time just talking about past experiences and had heard that woody would not sign anything. he was being driven by a red prius which i thought was kinda cool with everybody goin green now. anyways the car came to pick him up and he rode right past us out of the parking lot. after turning out, the car stopped and woody rolled his window down and said he would sign for us when he got back. with wrap time about 2 hours away we decided to hang where we were and just wait. well 7pm rolls around and we see the prius turning the corner, we all spring into action and get our things ready and he pulls up to the parking lot and the car stops and he rolls his window down and BAM! he was a bit hesitant with each autograph he signed and asked if we lived around here. i told him i appreciated all the hard work he was putting into the film and how i could not wait to see it to which woody replies "how do you know ive been working hard?" which cracked us all up for a moment. he politely signed for each of us and i was able to get a photo with him! superb day if i do say so myself. this officially closes the book on zombieland for this movie fan. be sure to check out the set photos in the zombieland album, they are pretty sweet.
