Could Birmingham become the next Hollywood? Nothing is impossible. Yet another production team plans to film a movie in downtown Birmingham and the surrounding areas.
Southpaw Entertainment will shoot the movie “Inheritance” here in Birmingham. Tentative shooting dates begin February 18 and end March 29.
Written by Matthew Kennedy and directed by Vaughn Stein, the independent film titled “Inheritance” paints a picture of what happens when the father of a rich and powerful family suddenly passes away, and leaves one shocking secret behind that could destroy his family’s lives.
Accomplished movie and television stars Kate Mara, Simon Pegg, Connie Nielsen and Chace Crawford play the lead roles in this thriller. Mara is most widely known for her work in “House of Cards,” and Pegg for “Mission: Impossible—Fallout” and Stephen Speilberg’s “Ready Player One.” Nielsen played Queen Hippolyta in the widely popular “Wonder Woman” movie franchise, and Crawford’s most iconic role is Nate Archibald in the “Gossip Girl” series.
The group Film Birmingham posted that the production crew is hiring! Many crew positions are currently open for local talent to fill.
