How did that happen? I came to New Orleans back in 1994 doing the “Interview with the Vampire” movie, based on the Anne Rice novel, and fell in love with the city. It got under my skin. Plenty of films have sputtered even with Pitt’s involvement. What can I say; it’s got the best people, the best everything. It’s the most interesting city in America. Actor Brad Pitt, who has a home in New Orleans, responded with extraordinary creativity and commitment.
