You may have noticed even more activity than usual at Dancing Goats this morning. Film crews, Decatur Police and catering trucks have set up shop in and around the coffee shop.
We reached out to the city’s Shirley Baylis – the city’s special events and community outreach coordinator – and she told us Fox 2000’s “Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda” is filming there today.
According to Deadline, the “coming of age” novel – which the film is based on…
…focuses on Simon Spier, a 16-year-old not-so-openly gay student. When an email written by Simon falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being made public. Change-averse Simon is forced to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he’s pushed out — in a way that won’t alienate his friends, compromise himself or ruin a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he hasn’t even met yet. “coming-of-age pic based on Becky Albertelli’s debut novel.”
