From an article about Cannes; I just took out the Ratner part, but you can read it all here: http://www.qctimes.net/articles/2006/06/04/features/arts_leisure/doc44825a5649da0549378150.txt
During a news conference for “X-Men: The Last Stand,” director Brett Ratner had some harsh words to say about his experience filming Fox TV’s “Prison Break” in Joliet, Ill.
“Do you want the truth?” he asked. “Joliet, Ill., is a miserable place, because it’s a very sad and depressing town … shooting in Illinois was fine, but that particular town was not a happy place to be.”
I’m guessing Joliet tourism officials won’t want Ratner as their spokesperson anytime soon.
