SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - It’s not uncommon to encounter a film set when you’re in Savannah. But what is it like for the actors and filmmakers visiting the Hostess City?

“We went to Atlanta, we looked at Marietta, and we were like, ‘Oh, wow. This is great. And then we came down to Savannah and we were like, this is where you make a movie.”

I was lucky enough to shoot a project here two years before the shutdown. So, when I got the call, they were like, ‘Hey, we’re doing this movie. It’s shooting in Savannah.’ I was like, ‘I’m in.’”

I love it! It’s hot. It’s hot. I’ll tell you that much. But I’m staying hydrated. But it’s absolutely beautiful.

It’s nice and quiet. The people are nice and friendly. There’s a lot of walking going on in Savannah. I know the tennis shoe market is sky high.

I took so many walks and just the energy here, and it’s just beautiful.

You just drive by and everything is so picturesque. It really does. Savannah looks like a storybook, in a way.

Everyone’s so welcoming, the southern hospitality. I mean, this is a great, great town.

Savannah is beautiful, the people are wonderful. It’s been a real treat to come to Savannah, Georgia and make not another church movie.

The spoof comedy stars Kevin Daniels, Vivica A. Fox, and Academy Award-nominee Mickey Rourke along with other big names like Tisha Campbell, Kyla Platt, and Lamorne Morris.

The film is co-directed by Johnny Mack, who is known for his work on the hit comedy show “The Real Husbands of Hollywood,” and James Michael Cummings who’s known for his role in “City on a Hill.”

However, you may see some of your local friends or family on the big screen.
