The film is scripted to cover several decades in the life of Eugene Allen, the White House butler who served many presidents; So, based on the photos within this post (which Oprah Winfrey shared on Twitter) they were likely shooting scenes covering the latter years.

Music for the film will be composed by the legendary Quincy Jones.

Laura Ziskin Production, The Butler is being produced by Pamela Oas Williams, the late Laura Ziskin, Lee Daniels, and Cassian Elwes; executive produced by Hilary Shor and Adam Merims; and co-produced by David Jacobson.

The independently-financed film is bankrolled by Follow Through ProductionsWindy Hill PicturesSalamander MediaSalloway Rubenstein Productions/Crystal City EntertainmentEarl W. StaffordStarstream FilmsYogi Entertainment, and Inner Media Capital
