"Leatherheads" opens today The romantic comedy which was filmed in and around Anderson, makes it’s debut at the movies. Will I see myself or landmarks I know? The Calhoun Historic Lofts were the main area filmed in town. Also scenes were filmed in Greenville including Westin Poinsett Hotel. "Leatherheads" stars George Clooney and Renee Zellweger a film about pro football set in 1926 when unlike college, pro ball was like mudwrestling --- dirty and sleazy. It’s about guys who never practiced but got together once a week to “play”. Which is actually to say they got together at $50 a game, to fight and beat each other into submission. Any for the past months movie star sightings have been frequent and the community has been abuzz. Remember learned about it here first.
