First Look: Ang Lee’s Taking Woodstock


Entertainment Weekly published the first photo of director and cast on the set of Taking Woodstock, the film based on a memoir by Elliot Tiber, the gay Greenwich Village interior decorator who facilitated the legendary music festival.

Ang Lee starts his productions off with a “Big Luck ceremony” which is what’s happening here, EW writes: “Also pictured are screenwriter/producer James Schamus (in white hat), and actors Demetri Martin (in striped shirt), Emile Hirsch (V-neck T-shirt), and Jonathan Groff (with bag slung over his shoulder and across his chest). The movie also stars Imelda Staunton, Henry Goodman, Liev Schreiber, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Mamie Gummer, Dan Fogler, Richard Thomas, Skylar Astin, Paul Dano, Zoe Kazan, and Eugene Levy.”
