Emilio Estevez is getting ready to start production on The Public, which will be produced by Bobby Schwartz and Ross Dinerstein of Eleven Eleven Films as well as Lisa Niedenthal. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Estevez wrote and will direct The Public as his follow-up to Bobby.
The Public is a story set in Los Angeles, during a 48-hour period on the two coldest days in the city, with the library overwhelmed by people seeking shelter. After getting rebuffed by the administration to keep the doors open, one librarian stages an act of civil disobedience. He ends up dealing with the library's new inhabitants, many of them mentally ill.
Production on The Public is scheduled to start March 26th in Los Angeles.
