Royersford Is Famous!

So lately we've been noticing an awful lot of commotion about our usually sleepy little town. There have been police barricades blocking off parts of Main Street, and some shops have undergone a remarkable transformation.

Yesterday we finally found out why.

See that guy in the green jacket, down with a bunch of other people, directly in the center of the picture? That is none other than Peter Jackson, of King Kong and Lord Of The Rings fame. Turns out he's filming a new movie called The Lovely Bones, starring Mark Wahlberg, Rachel Weisz, and Susan Sarandon.

To be honest, it's been a little bothersome from our perspective, since our travel through town has been completely impeded. Just tonight, it took my wife almost half an hour to go the ~2 blocks between the river and our house, due to multiple detours. The center of town looks like a football stadium at the moment, with bright lights all over the place. I'd go down and check it out, but there are police everywhere!

So I guess for the moment, we are living in a movie, literally!

Note: thanks to and for the pictures.
