Actor Danny Glover will star in a movie that could help revive a shuttered library in the impoverished Detroit enclave of Highland Park.
The film project titled "Highland Park" was announced Monday at a news conference at the McGregor Library.
The story line will mirror the ongoing struggle to reopen the library, which closed in March 2002 because the city could not afford to keep it open.
Producer Chris Panizzon says Glover will star in the film.
Lt. Gov. John Cherry Jr. was on hand for the announcement.
Highland Park Mayor Hubert Yopp tells the Detroit Free Press the library will undergo significant restoration and the movie will be a "steppingstone" to its reopening.
