Two Movie Stars Seen In Brownsville
Darren Doyle, story:
As movie production continues in Brownsville today for "The Prayer Box," verbal commitments have been received for the filming of two more movies in Edmonson County in 2018, according to Rhonda Clemmons, local representative of the SOKY Film Commission.
The same company that is working here now plans on bringing another faith-based movie, "The Bethlehem Ranch," to Edmonson County in January. Clemmons said that crews now working in Brownsville said how impressed they've been with the hospitality of Brownsville and Edmonson County.
"They keep telling me how nice everyone is," she said. "They say that people aren't this nice everywhere they go."
Crews today are filming at Brownsville Missionary Baptist Church where many locals are participating as extras. Scenes have also been shot at ECHS and other parts of the community with production being expected to wrap up on Dec. 20th. Sources close to the production crew told the Edmonson Voice that two well known movie veterans are starring in the local production and are now in Brownsville. They are: Denise Richards and Reginald VelJohnson. Richards, once married to Charlie Sheen, starred in "The World Is Not Enough" as a 'Bond girl' with Pierce Brosnan, and VelJohnson's most notable role was Carl Winslow from the hit 90's tv show "Family Matters."
Clemmons said a different production crew has committed to a film called "Pirates' Cove," and is set to be filmed in March at Nolin Lake. The movie is supposed to be about children finding treasure and will have similarities to the 80's hit "Goonies."
"This is why Edmonson County joined the film commission," said Clemmons. "This is great for our local businesses and our community. We're happy these companies have chosen Edmonson County for their films."
