Stars take on ‘Illuminate Sweetwater’ as ‘Wicked’ begins on Syfy
WEDNESDAY, JULY 21, 2020 (AP) Stars of “Wicked” have taken on a new foe, as a new “Illumination Station Lamp” light illuminates a town in the movie.
The iconic light is now part of the Syfy drama, which premiered Tuesday.
“Wick” director Mike Nichols said the light will be part of an ongoing arc of the drama, and that it will eventually be used by the residents of “Sweetwater,” the town in which “Witch” takes place.
The town is the backdrop for a story arc in “Wicks” starring Natalie Portman.
Nichols said “WICK” was inspired by a real-life town, and he said he hopes it will help bring awareness to the plight of the people living in “SweetWater.”
Nichols said he wanted to use the light because “sweetwater” is one of the most popular names for a local river in the area, which is known as the “Little Big Horn.”
Nichols and “Wicky” co-star Michael Pena, who plays a character named “The Witch,” said they didn’t have any idea the town would be such a popular name for the river until they started filming.
Nichols and Pena said they hope “Wicking” will serve as a way to give back to the community.
“It’s a very symbolic way to honor this place, to show people that we care,” Pena told The Associated Press in a phone interview.
“We’ve been fighting for years to have it recognized as a place to live.”
Nichols hopes that “Wicker” can help bring light to the “little big horn.”
The town, which has no electricity or running water, is located about 120 miles (190 kilometers) northeast of Dallas.
Nichols, who has been on the set of “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “The Social Network,” said the film will explore the relationship between love and witchcraft, a topic that he hopes will make people more aware of the plight and impact of poverty and unemployment in the region.
Nichols has said the show is about “wickedness.”
“Winnie the Pooh” star and “Gossip Girl” creator Shonda Rhimes said the “Widows” movie is a celebration of the love of life, which he said has been lost in recent years.
Rhimes told the AP that the film is not “about love, it’s about community.”
“I don’t think you’re going to find any love anywhere in this country, in this world,” Rhimes added.
“I’m just glad that the love lives in this town.”
Rhimes, who grew up in “Puppyville” and lives in New York City, said the story of “A Song of Ice and Fire” is “a story about love, and the love that we all share.
And so I think it’s a story about hope, and hope is what we’re going through right now.”
Rhines said she hopes to share the film with audiences at film festivals and the world over.
The story of the town of “sweet water” in “sweetwaters” movie will be in the “Sweetwaters” book series.
The show will also explore the plight that “Sweet Water” faces in the aftermath of the 2016 hurricanes.
