The woman was selling Spanish wines - like tempranillos - and was doing so, it turns out, because of the Writer's Guild strike. Turns out, she's a casting agent here in Louisiana, and has been effectively out of work for a few months.
Things are looking up for her, though - she just started background casting for...egads, this is so wrong...
...Final Destination 4.
(The first three weren't nearly bad enough, I guess.)
Anyhow, IMDB has a plot synopsis for the film, which is slated to be filmed here in New Orleans:
Nick and some friends barely survive an accident at a race track where the crash flies into the audience, killing those who remained. Now, those who survived are being killed off one by one in gruesome freak accidents.
Probably the most interesting thing about this film is that it will be filmed in high definition 3-D format.
