I understand that there is a new movie soon to be released based on the contretemps of council member Andy Cohen called "Runaway Councilman". Does anyone have any information on this?

I am producing a film entitled Runaway Councilman. It will be filmed at Bayfront Park. But first I have to settle lawsuits brought on by the ACLU, Committee for a Green Foothills, Peninsula Open Space Trust and MoveAlong.org. The stellar cast for this scintillating epic film includes:

Rocky Carroll as Mayor Nicholas Jellins
Linda Purl as Council Member Lee Duboc
Kristin Scott Thomas as Council Member Mickie Winkler
Jim Carrey as Council Member Andy Cohen
Rosie O'Donnell as Council Member Kelly Ferguson
James Caan as City Manager David Boesch
James Brolin as City Attorney Bill McClure
Morgan Fairchild as Assistant City Manager Audrey Seymour
Wynonna Ryder as City Clerk Sylvia Vonderlinden
Robert Redford as Almanac Publisher Tom Gibboney and
Conchata Ferrell as Political Advisor Gail Slocum
