INSP Films Shoots “County Line” in Toccoa
INSP Films will be premiering its newest film, County Line, at the Historic Ritz Theatre at the Schaeffer Center June 16th-18th.
The film was shot in Toccoa in 2016 in numerous locations throughout the city, including the Toccoa Raceway, historic court house, Stephens County Hospital and others.
Vice President of Original Movies for INSP Films Gary Wheeler said that they chose Toccoa because they had such a good experience filming their first film here, Heritage Falls.
“We just really like it and liked the way the town looked,” said Wheeler. “We also really like the people in the town. We decided lets come back, so we started working on a script with Toccoa in mind and that script became County Line.”
The movie is an action-packed crime drama, telling the story of Alden Rockwell, an ex-sheriff who gets involved in an investigation.
Wheeler said that the film turned out great and he’s excited to premiere it.
“We’re really excited about the film,” said Wheeler. “It turned out great. It has a real fun, mystery procedural feel to it with a mild action element.”
He tells WNEG about the cast.
“We were very excited, we got Tom Wopat from lot’s of things including The Dukes of Hazzard, Jeff Fahey from Lost, Patricia Richardson from Home Improvement and Grant Goodeve from Eight is Enough, so it was just a really good cast,” said Wheeler. “We’re really proud of the movie and excited to bring it to Toccoa.”
President of the Toccoa Stephens County Chamber of Commerce Julie Paysen said that the cast and crew of County Line was great for the community.
“We have just enjoyed thoroughly working with the INSP cast and crew,” said Paysen. “They’re wonderful people and they were great to our community. We had an opportunity in each of the movies have residents in our community be a part of it as extras and so that was fun. It’ll be exciting to see it on the big screen.”
Paysen said that she hopes the community will come out to the premiere in June.
