"Filming in San Anselmo to Take Holiday Break"

Marin Independent Journal, 22 November 2000

Filming for "Bandits," an MGM Pictures release expected to hit the screens next summer, continued yesterday near the Bay View Bank on San Anselmo Avenue.

The romantic comedy stars Billy Bob Thornton, Bruce Willis and Cate Blanchett, and is directed by former Ross resident Barry Levinson.

Thornton and Willis play convicts who break out of prison and rob banks to finance a new life in Mexico.

While driving, they strike a pedestrian, played by Blanchett. Instead of pressing charges, she joins them on the road.

Filming is expected to resume next week after the crew takes off for Thanksgiving.

'Bandits' also was filmed in Sonoma County last week.
