The Greek archaeological council has granted permission to the film crew of "My Life in Ruins" to use The Acropolis as the movie's setting.

An amazing breakthrough has truly been made concerning the making of Tom Hanks-produced "My Life in Ruins." The movie will be the first feature in 2,500 years to use The Acropolis in Greece as its setting following the green light given by the country's archaeological council to feature the historical site in its scenes.

According to Britain's Guardian newspaper, it turns out that it was the star of the flick, Nia Vardalos, who had herself lobbied the officials to obtain the permission. Vardalos, a Canadian-born actress of Greek descent, is reported to have reached a deal on the matters after making her way to convince them that this could be an effective tool to increase tourism while promising that the ancient monument would be treated with respect.

Responding to the successful attempt, The Guardian amusingly considered the decision to be "startling" since Vardalos' 2002 smash hit feature of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" previously ignited controversy among Greeks over the way "their ethnic cousins in the U.S. were portrayed."
