Universal Studios will start shooting "Biloxi Blues," the second work in playwright Neil Simon's semi-autobiographical trilogy, in Arkansas next month, state officials say. The film will be directed by Mike Nichols, and will feature Matthew Broderick reprising the protagonist's role, according to executive producer Joe Caracciola. The movie, based on the hit Broadway show of the same name, picks up where Simon's "Brighton Beach Memoirs" ended.
