Thomasville native Allen Cheney serves as one of the producers for the movie, and he was excited to bring the filming to his hometown.
"So, when it came time to do that, it was natural for me to say Thomasville, Thomasville pictures," Cheney told the station. "I want this one to be my brand. This one's special because of the team around me; they're more like a family, and most of all where we're getting to film this. This one is a gift.”
