Royko, the movie



A film crew's been in southeastern Wisconsin the past several days making a movie out of one of Mike Royko's most famous columns -- the one he wrote after his wife Carol died suddenly in 1979, remembering the cabin by Bohner Lake they used to drive to when they were young.

Chicago businessman Norman Skul is behind the project; he wants to adapt three Royko columns in all into a half-hour movie that he hopes will introduce the late columnist to a generation that doesn't remember him. A lot of Columbia College film and video students are involved.

Here's the story from the Wisconsin State Journal. (H/t Romenesko .)
