"August: Osage County" Set Designer Shops For Props In Jenks

Posted: Updated:


They're still a month from production, but filmmakers are already creating the sets for "August: Osage County".

Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts will star in the film, which is adapted from the Tony winning play by Tulsan Tracy Letts.

It will be shot in Bartlesville and Pawhuska.

And we've now learned that a set designer for the show has been shopping for props up and down Main Street in Jenks.

At a shop called Antique NV, she bought about 300 items mostly from the 1970s.      

Barry Marlow is the owner. He says, "A lot of things that you would need to put a kitchen together, a living room together, knick knacks. They bought for instance a metal fan. They bought an old stapler that would go on a desk from the 1970s. A typewriter. Things that were period in the 1970s."         

He laughed,  "And you know what, she didn't worry about spending any money at all. She just got what she wanted and didn't ask for a discount."

Shop owners are looking forward to playing "spot the prop" when the movie comes out.

Which by the way, is already getting some Oscar buzz online.
