"The Valley is the perfect setting because it's such a tight-knit community," said Race, who grew up in New York and has lived in various parts of the Valley since moving to L.A. in 1996.
"It's flat, it's open, and there's so much diversity. There's so much happening here. There's Hollywood, there are all different ethnicities. It has a wealth of talent, a wealth of restaurants, a wealth of life. There's just so much here in the Valley, it's amazing."
The plan, if the movie actually gets made, is to set it at the Canoga Park end of Sherman Way.
