SW Missouri Native Returns Home to Shoot Feature Film Comedy
Burbank, California – Hollywood is coming to the four states.
JUNK STORE, a new independent feature film will be shot in Southwest Missouri. The low-budget comedy film about a Mother and Son's junk store in a small Southern town will be directed by hometown native Jack Truman. Truman, a native of Lamar and Joplin, is returning back home to shoot his first comedy feature film. According to Writer/Director Truman, the film is a modern day version of SANFORD AND SON meets CLERKS.
“I wanted to come back home and share with the film world a part of life that I come from”, Truman stated in press materials. “Most people don't know about this part of the country. I want to give something back to the area where I grew up, and at the same time, make an original film that will entertain people and show them how real people are. It's not hard to make a film that you're passionate about. Especially when that film is about a life that you know”.
Truman is an award – winning independent filmmaker, and 30 year veteran of television, film and stage. A veteran director, writer and actor, Truman's films have screened at over 300 film festivals around the world.
Shooting begins late summer in Southwest Missouri. The film will be casting local people for speaking roles and extras. Also needed are people in the four states to help with crew.
