"'Wolfs of Wall' street may use vacant CCF as a prison set location in movie
Is Leonard DiCaprio going to prison?
If so, will he do his time in Taft?
It's showbiz, too.
Taft's vacant community correctional facility may serve as a set for "The Wolf of Wall Street," a movie now in production starring DiCaprio and directed by Martin Scorsese.
The city has been trying desperately for more than a year now to find inmates to place in the facility but it has remained empty.
Now Hollywood may give the city an inmate, even if it is a fictional one.
Chief of Police Ed Whiting said Tuesday afternoon the city has been contacted by the production team to see if the CCF would be suitable and available for use as a movie location.
It's available, so the only question now is iis it suitable?
"The Wolf of Wall Street" is crime drama with DiCaprio playing a stockbroker who finds himself involved in a "large securities fraud case involving corruption on Wall Street, corporate banking world and mob infiltration, according to the website imdb.com.
