Lights, Camera, Action: New movie being filmed in Hub City

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Historia Films (The Historian) will begin filming their new film, The Hollow, with the Academy Award-nominated filmmaker, Lisa Bruce (The Theory of Everything), next week in Forrest County. 

The Hollow, directed by Hattiesburg native Miles Doleac follows a team of F.B.I. agents as they descend on a small town in Mississippi to investigate the death of a U.S. congressman's daughter in a mysterious triple homicide.

The partnership between Historia Films and Lisa Bruce is built on a strong vision for the future of film development and production in Mississippi. 

"We are incredibly excited to partner with Miles Doleac and Historia Films on The Hollow,” says Lisa Bruce. “The state legislature and film office have worked very hard to put the proper resources and incentives in place to attract the film industry to Mississippi, and the result has been an economic boom to local economies. Because of our close ties here we intend to do whatever we can to help promote the cinematic arts in great state of Mississippi. This means we're not going to stop with The Hollow and look forward to bringing other projects here in the very near future." 

The Hollow is the second film to be filmed in Hattiesburg in the last two years by Historia Films and is starring James Callis (Battlestar Galactica), William Sadler (The Shawshank Redemption), William Forsythe (The Rock) and Jeff Fahey (Lost).

“Attracting films to shoot in Mississippi is a growing initiative for the state,” explains Rick Taylor, Executive Director of the Hattiesburg Tourism and Convention Commissions. “Hosting film production in our community creates a significant economic impact while alsoshowcasing all that Hattiesburg has to offer to audiences around the world. We support Historia Films as they continue to bring films and film-making to our area. We are especially excited about their current production of The Hollow.”

Miles Doleac, Ryan Jackson and Mackenzie Westmoreland are producing the film for Historia Films. Lisa Bruce is executive producing and Mark Ryland is co-producing. Principal photography will take place in the Hattiesburg area through July. 

If you are interested in being an extra, production intern or having your home or vehicle featured in the movie, please send your contact information and a few photos to hollowlocal@gmail.com.
