"It is our intention to shoot in Baltimore and Toronto," said Mark Kaufman, an executive vice president with New Line. "It could be a day in Baltimore, it could be a week in Baltimore. ... That has been our intention from the start."
The play, a musical version of John Waters' 1988 film about the desegregation of a Baltimore television dance show, won eight Tony Awards in 2003. The film is tentatively set to be released next year.
