As I'm writing the script, I've been calling this next possible location, "The Overlook." I can't help but think I'm just stealing from "The Shining," but at the same time, if you're going to steal from something, might as well go for the big guns. After seeing the photos of this amazing location, how could the name not be "The Overlook"??
Other than the obvious view, this location had the following:
20 Foot Tall Gates
Bizarre Oval Shaped Look out
The Actual Overlook
A Noose with a Tea Cup
I also love the place's decadence. Some of the pieces there were worth more money than I'll ever see in my life, and at the same time, these things are just laying around, unprotected, and untouched, but slowly aging.
This place would elevate the film with ease. I know Mikey would love to shoot at a place like this (in both day and night), and there's no way being in an area like that wouldn't elevate the actor's performances.
What do you all think?
