Big Stone Gap Movie, Cue the lights, camera, action!
Hollywood has come to the mountains as filming is underway for a movie starring Ashley Judd, Patrick Wilson and Whoopi Goldberg.
The movie is the talk of the town for locals at the Dari Delite, which is a local restaurant frequented by locals.
Gary Hall owns the business and said folks are excited to see a celebrity.
“Since all the stars have arrived, yeah, everybody has been running around town trying to catch a glimpse of one of the stars,” said Hall.
Recently, film crews descended on the town to make “Big Stone Gap”, a movie based on a series of novels by Adriana Trigiana.
Trigiana is a Big Stone Gap native.
Having film crews is a rare brush with stardom that many in town are enjoying.
Inside the Vintage on Main shop, owner Patty Akers will have a claim to fame.
“At first they bought some things off me and then they come in and wanted some more and I just donated some things to them to put in the movie, which I am very happy to help them with,” said Akers.
