After a year that saw stars Matthew McConaughey, Kurt Russell, Morgan Freeman, Luke Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston and Mark Hamill film movies in the state, the Alabama Film Office is looking forward to build on its successes in growing the film and entertainment industry here.
“We’ve been very fortunate,” said Brian S. Jones, media and location coordinator for the Alabama Film Office. “We’ve had numerous productions that have really opened up for us just in the last year.”
McConaughey and Russell created a buzz as they shot “The Rivals of Amziah King” at various locations throughout the state. The same is true of Hiddleston and Hamill as they filmed “The Life of Chuck” in Fairhope. Freeman and Hemsworth star in “Gunner,” which was filmed in the Bessemer and McCalla areas.
