Director Marc Lawrence '81
In an interview with Pipe Dream last May, noted filmmaker and Binghamton alumnus Marc Lawrence '81 described his upcoming rom-com, The Rewrite, as a “love letter to Binghamton.” So for Binghamton students, the love interest of the film is not just the beautiful Marisa Tomei, but the beautiful city of Binghamton.
Here's a list of reasons why seeing The Rewrite should be added to our DARS as a gen-ed requirement:
Marc Lawrence met his wife at the vending machine outside of the Newcomb Reading Room in Bartle, and their romance inspired the film.
The only thing missing from this shot is the Pegasus statue.
How many college students can say their drive to school is in a major motion picture?
Baxter's ears can be seen behind Tomei in this scene from the trailer.
(...and maybe even eaten).
Because we could all use more Binghamton swag! We're giving away props used in production of the film to lucky Bearcats.
Pretty impressive, huh?
The director of photography and production designers were told to recreate our (sometimes) gray and gloomy skies.
Hugh Grant's character lives on Main Street. As an undergrad, Lawrence lived on Floral Ave in nearby Johnson City.
For those with dreams of screenwriting, take an English class with Spanos.
While on location, Grant was spotted at the two holy grails of Binghamton dining: Lost Dog Cafe and Wegmans. He also took the time to take a photo on Court St. with this fan from BingSpot.
Reviewer Elizabeth Kerr calls it Grant and Lawrence's "strongest outing to date," in reference to their three previous collaborations.
