The Zombieland star, who co-wrote and directs the comedy, admits he is contemplating the idea of transferring the production once it wraps its eight-week run in New York next month (Sep12), but he’s concerned the explicit language will turn conservative locals off the play.
He tells New York Post columnist Cindy Adams, “I’m travelling after this. Doing another Hunger Games in Georgia. Someone suggested booking this show there. But it has dirty words. I’m not sure it’ll be big there.”
Harrelson turned playwright to collaborate with his pal Frankie Hyman on the dark comedy, which is inspired by their former careers as construction workers in Houston, Texas.
The actor, who portrays Haymitch Abernathy in The Hunger Games, will return to the franchise this autumn (12) to begin production on the second film installment, Catching Fire.
