    Mystic River

    Director Clint Eastwood told The New Yorker magazine: "Mystic River centers on three working-class friends: Jimmy, played by Sean Penn; Dave, by Tim Robbins; and Sean, by Kevin Bacon and how their lives have been haunted by an incident of sexual abuse in the past. There are so many characters, and the story weaves back and forth in time." In the present, the action takes place in South Boston (where Eastwood and Co. filmed for two months last year). That's where Jimmy (Penn) discovers the body of a murdered young woman and how it connects to his and his friend's past.

    Eastwood doesn't appear in the film; a rare situation for him. But he's selected a top-notch cast. Joining Penn, Bacon, and Robbins is Lawrence Fishburne (The Matrix, Once In The Life), Marcia Gay Harden (Pollack, Space Cowboys), Laura Linney (The Mothman Prophecies, You Can Count On Me). Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential) wrote the screenplay which is based on the novel by Dennis Lehane.

    At present Mystic River has an October 3rd release date. But that of course is subject to change.
    ohhhh GREAT CAST !!!!

    The scene where they discover the body in the woods was shot near my football practice last fall.

    Helicopters used in the scene were "parked" on the practice field.
