Great Shows: Jam with Jimmy Buffett and Dave Matthews Band tickets, rock with Radiohead!
New Line Cinema is pumping more money into the project, after a successful preliminary screening of the movie for an audience. Director Will Shriner and a crew are back filming additional scenes in Florida.
According to Shriner, Buffett is in Los Angeles now working on the soundtrack. It will include a new Buffett song entitled “Good Guys Win.”
“The title is pretty much the theme of the movie,” Shriner said.

This week in 1996, Jamaican authorities opened fire on Jimmy Buffett’s seaplane, the Hemisphere Dancer, mistaking it for a drug trafficker’s plane. U-2 singer Bono was with Buffett, but neither one was hurt.
Buffett wrote a song about the incident, entitled “Jamaica Mistaica,” that can be found on the album Banana Wind.
Jimmy Buffett and company have been working on a new album this month. Will Kimbrough writes:
I have been in St Barths since the 3rd, writing with Peter Mayer, Roger Guth and Jimmy Buffett. I think we have some good stuff going.
I think we helped Jimmy finish a couple of great songs for his next album. For our efforts, we had a few winter days in the sun at St Barths, eating French food, drinking French wine and sitting around like rock stars.
