Aidan Quinn, Brooke Shields and Kris Kristofferson have now started shooting indie film The Greening of Whitney Brown. The family comedy also stars 14-year-old Sammi Hanratty, who also appears in the forthcoming A Christmas Carol with Jim Carrey. Hanratty stars as a pampered Philadelphia teenager who has to move to a country farm after her parents (Quinn, Shields) have financial problems. There, she befriends a Gypsy Vanner horse owned by Kristofferson’s character. The film will continue shooting in Georgia and Pennsylvania through mid-November. Peter Odiorne makes his feature directorial debut working from an original script by Gail Gilchriest (My Dog Skip).
