Update: Water contamination docu-drama Flint with Cher now expected to film in Toronto, according to Production Weekly.
Is Cher is coming to Vancouver this Spring to star in and executive produce Lifetime’s TV movie Flint about the water-contamination crisis in Flint, Michigan?
Katie Couric is co-producing with Craig Zadan and Neal Moron. Bruce Beresford is directing based on a script by Barbara Stepansky.
The water contamination in Flint, Michigan is considered a toxic crime. Cher will play a local whose family was seriously affected by the poisoned water. The lead seepage into the drinking water created such a public health crisis that President Obama declared a federal state of emergency in January 2016.
“Let me be blunt,” the Governor of Michigan Rick Snyder testified before a House Committee. “This was a failure of government at all levels. Local, state and federal officials — we all failed the families of Flint.”
Anticipation in Vancouver:
