The prison break from Dannemora happened two years ago this week. At the time, it seemed like something right out of the movies. Now, it’s getting the Hollywood treatment. Actor, director & filmmaker Ben Stiller was in Plattsburgh this week, with a crew, reportedly scouting out locations to film an 8-part series for Showtime. Production is scheduled to get underway later this year. There was also a celebrity sighting in Montreal this week. Former President Barback Obama dined at a trendy restaurant in the city’s Little Burgundy neighborhood with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Mr. Obama was in town to give a speech to the Montreal Chamber of Commerce. And while it looked calm inside the restaurant, outside was mayhem, with about 200 security guards and a street packed with star-struck onlookers.
