“Miami University is featured in the film — it doesn’t stand in for another school,” Schaefer said. “The production liked the brick buildings and their architecture, which is reminiscent of a classic New England, Ivy league school.”
Clooney caused a buzz earlier this month and in November when he personally scouted the business school. He has been spotted with his co-stars – Ryan Gosling, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood – at spots in Cincinnati as filming began there this month. The movie will also be shot in Michigan, according to the Cincinnati Film Commission.
