Richard Dreyfus, Danny Glover starring in “Killing Winston Jones”, new feature film shooting in Savannah

There’s already been a lot of buzz already about Killing Winston Jones, the Joel David Moore-directed film that begins shooting in Savannah on Monday.

From Variety:

Richard Dreyfuss, Danny Masterson, Danny Glover and Jon Heder have come onboard to star in dark indie comedy “Killing Winston Jones.” […]

Story centers on a sixth-grade English teacher (played by Masterson) who’s on a mission to get the newly constructed junior high gymnasium named after his father (Dreyfuss) despite the fact that the person so memorialized must be dead — leading to a bitter contest over the naming rights with his old rival (Glover).

Moore, of course, spent some time in Savannah just recently, playing Joey Ramone in CBGB. Here’s Moore’s latest tweet to his 48 thousand followers:
