Movie shoot boosts local economy in Thomasville (wtxl.com)
THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WTXL) — South Georgia is getting the Hollywood treatment right now. Big names like Kevin Bacon, Storm Reid, and Machine Gun Kelly are currently filming in Thomasville.
“I get to film in a lot of cool places all over the world, but there’s something really special about being able to come and do it here,” said producer Allen Cheney.
Cheney was born and raised in Thomasville. He’s back now shooting his movie “One Way”.
The movie follows Freddy, played by Colson Baker, more commonly known by his stage name Machine Gun Kelly on the run after a business deal gone wrong. Cheney says the best part about filming a movie at home is getting to share the ins and outs of his job with his loved ones.
“The people I grew up, the family. To be able to bring them here and show them what I do firsthand. It’s really foreign to a lot of people, what’s goes into a movie,” said Cheney.
