Skate ramps come down to make room for film production

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Pre-production for an action adventure film being shot in South Mississippi begins in a couple of weeks. WLOX News has learned part of the movie "Impact Earth" will be shot at locations across the coast. The rest of the movie will be filmed inside what used to be the Harrison County skate park.

Wednesday, county workers took apart the ramp skateboarders once used. We are told those ramps will be put in storage and donated to any city interested in starting its own skate park.

As for the sound stage replacing the ramps, members of the state film commission say they've already heard from a variety of movie and TV producers. They're looking at the Debuys Road complex as the perfect place to build sets and to shoot their productions.
