    Caption: From stage to screen

    Nicholas Rudall, Founding Director of Court Theatre and Associate Professor in Classical Languages & Literatures, pauses between takes on the set of Dead Drop, the Andy Davis film starring Keanu Reeves and Morgan Freeman that was being filmed on campus last week. Rudall plays fictional University physicist Alistair Barkley, who develops a safe, clean, inexhaustible method of producing energy. In this scene, filmed in Mandel Hall with hundreds of University students and staff members as extras, Barkley discusses the importance of such a discovery.
