Today, I was fortunate enough to get on the set of a new Warner Bros. film about the aftermath of the terrible Marshall University football team plane crash of 1970.
Below... extras in 70's garb on their way to the set.
Matthew McConaughey looks positively weird in the hair and wardrobe. He's playing Coach Jack Lengyl who rebuilt the MU football team after the plane crash of 1970.
Anytime that Matthew is supposed to be on set, the girls show up in force.
Below is Oscar nominated actor David Strathairn. Strathairn appeared in "Matewan" which was also filmed in West Virginia. Here he is playing college president Donald Dedmon.
Director McG and screenwriter Jamie Linden. In the foreground are a couple of extras in their 1970 wardrobe.
Below is Anthony Mackie who is portraying defensive back Nate Ruffin.
These guys brought the 35 year old cars.
I'm going to post more photos from the set tomorrow.
UPDATE: More photos are up now in the next post.
