KILN, MS (WLOX) - There's a new movie being filmed in South Mississippi staring former Walking Dead actress Brighton Sharbino.
'Urban Country' is shot in several locations on the Coast. Producer Matt Keith says it's his second time shooting a film in the area. He credits not only the variety of scenery, but also welcoming locals.
"They're now doing the apartment up top. They've been in the main barns. The horses have all become acclimated to the cameras," said Maria Des Angles, co-owner of K and C Stables.
Film crews and camera equipment are scattered throughout the horse boarding facility in the Kiln. The movie is about a young girl who runs into trouble after hanging out with the wrong crowd. After landing in jail, she goes to work on the family ranch.
The stable's owners Charles and Maria Des Angles say it's the second movie shot at the facility.
"We're very pleased and blessed to have them here. They are bringing good things to our community, jobs, money, just publicity to our area," said Des Angles.
The film crew has been filming roughly 12 hours a day for the past week. Shooting also took place at several other spots like MGM Park, the Hancock County Jail, and Hancock High School.
Other actors featured include Lou Diamond Phillips and Jason London. The film is set for a limited theatrical release in early 2018.
