Missouri Film News for July/August

A Central Missouri location is popping up on screens across the country, courtesy of the horror comedy You’re Next. The film, the subject of much industry buzz, opened nationwide Aug. 23 and features a handsome mansion near the Columbia Country Club. Filmmakers shot there in 2011, and the independent film was picked up for distribution by Lionsgate following a screening at the Toronto Film Festival. IMDB

In addition to those completed films, we’re very excited to see Cape Girardeau on the big screen sometime next year, when
the movie Gone Girl is likely to open. The film is based on a best-selling novel by Gillian Flynn, and Cape Girardeau serves as the book’s fictional setting of North Carthage, Missouri. There are still openings to join the cast and crew of that production; all inquiries concerning those opportunities can be made to their production office e-mail GoneGirlMO@gmail.com.
