‘Made’ in New York

Big names out for 'Swingers' follow-up

It got off to a late start, but people were willing to wait in the barely air-conditioned Village East theater Tuesday for Artisan’s preem of “Made.”

Helmer, writer and co-star Jon Favreau said he enjoyed showing the movie in New York, since it was shot here. “There are a lot of details that only a New York audience is going to catch, and they caught all the little things. Coming back to the city that I grew up in and being able to close down Mulberry Street and have motorcycles coming down the block the wrong way, in front of all of the restaurants in Little Italy, that was exciting to me.”

Co-producer Peter Billingsley said that he thinks the film will not disappoint the built-in “Swingers” audience. “We are a small film and we put a lot of blood and sweat into this one and a whole lot of love, we hope that people find it and seek it out.”

Guests didn’t need pic’s Sean “Puffy” Combs’ character Ruiz to get them into the after-party at Spa, where scenes were filmed.

Partygoers included Artisan honchos Bill Block, Amorette Jones and Geoffrey Rehnert; pic’s Vince Vaughn, Frederico Castelluccio, Jennifer Esposito, Drea de Matteo and Vincent Pastore; plus guests Jerry Adler, Lorraine Bracco, Faith Evans, Piper Perabo, Tony Sirico and Steven Van Zandt.
