It’s official. The world will get its first look at “Foxcatcher” at the Cannes Film Festival. The lineup is being announced today and the movie shot in Western Pennsylvania is on the list.
“Foxcatcher” stars Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Sienna Miller, Vanessa Redgrave and Anthony Michael Hall. Miller directs a screenplay by Dan Futterman and E. Max Frye about a real-life chemical fortune heir who went to prison for killing an Olympic gold medalist and wrestler.
In January 1996, John du Pont shot and killed David Schultz, a 1984 gold medal winner who came to live and train at the state-of-the-art Foxcatcher National Training Center that du Pont had built on his 800-acre property in Newtown Square, Pa. Wilpen Hall in Sewickely Heights was the stand-in for Foxcatcher Farms during 2012 filming.
