Christian Slater's producer mother is making a movie about a New York apartment block that has been home to stars like Alicia Keys, Angela Lansbury and Larry David. The trio all lived at Manhattan Plaza, a government-subsidised building for performing artists in the city's Hell's Kitchen neighbourhood. Mary Jo Slater, who lived there from 1977 to 1986, has gathered together famous former residents - and actor Samuel L. Jackson who once worked as a security guard in the block - to help her make The Miracle on 42nd Street. The documentary is due for release later in 2008.
