College Life At UNC Goes Hollywood

Posted July 23, 2001

— The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is headed for the big screen.

Filming started Monday on the independent film, "The Pink House." Writer Ian Williams created the script as a tribute to the house he lived in while a student at UNC.

"I was living at the actual Pink House, and there was a party planned for that night at the house that we did not plan, so we were trying desperately to stop the party from happening," Williams says. "That same day, none of my roommates paid the rent, so I remember thinking, 'What an incredible set-up for a screen play.'"

The "Animal House"-type comedy is scheduled to be finished in March.
