'Killing Winston Jones' crew films at Arts Academy

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The cast and production crew for "Killing Winston Jones" filmed on Thursday at the Savannah Arts Academy. Students got to take a break from their classes to check out all the action. Stars of the movie include Danny Glover, Richard Dreyfuss, Danny Masterson and Jon Heder.

"When I found out the guy from 'Napoleon Dynamite' was here, I freaked out. I was so excited. I really want to see them or meet them," said Nora Webb, a 10th-grader.

"Everyone is really excited and pumped to have something shot in Savannah. We know things have been shot here but it is cool to have it happen in your own school. It is an honor," said Laurel Anderson, a 10th-grader.

The film began shooting in Savannah at the end of November.
