MS residents excited as Hollywood comes to local town

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - Many Mississippi residents are getting a brush with fame Friday as Hollywood shoots upcoming movie 'Quarry'.

The quiet community of Bridgetown is excited as Hollywood film crews take over the DeSoto County neighborhood.

" When they first contacted me to use my home my wife wasn't too happy over it," explained Stanley Quarles.

Crews came in laying down outdated brown shag carpet over newly laid hardwood floors; but, he's more than ok with that.

The HBO/Cinemax movie series centers around a Marine sniper who returns home from Vietnam in 1973. The veteran is treated like an outcast by family and friends and the community when he returns home.

For now, things are not so normal in Bridgetown with the big cranes making loud noises...and lights popping up everywhere. But, the folks certainly aren't complaining.

"It's just a lot more traffic. Lot of people running around here trying to see what's going on... (there's) a lot of excitement about it," stated resident Joe Butler.

The crews are also using the Memphis Airport, Rust College, and other locations throughout North Mississippi for the series.
