'Redneck Roots' Wraps

Posted by Jarvis Holliday On 9/21/2010 1 comment
Redneck Roots, "a romantic comedy gone south," wrapped filming over the weekend. The movie is being produced by Charlotte-based Emulsion Arts, and most of the filming was done in Charlotte and surrounding towns.

The synopsis of the movie goes:

"Chris Dowdy, a beautiful young woman, has always been ashamed of her kissin' cousin redneck past. So when her sister's high school graduation calls her home, she covers up the truth, lies and leaves the big city and her boyfriend behind in a gigantic fib. Unbeknownst to Chris, her jealous boyfriend, Ben, takes off in hot pursuit after his true love into the deep South. Nothing could prepare Ben for the oddball, off-kilter loveable kin and townspeople of Beaver County. Nothing. A sexy sister, a Mamma that loves Jesus and a Daddy that loves the 'juice' sets the tone as a funny foul-mouthed grandmother, a tight knit group of backyard bubbas, storekeepers, police officers set off rapid-fire one liners all day long."

Below are photos from the final shoot day, the graduation scene, courtesy of its Facebook page. The movie stars Heather Gilliand as Chris Dowdy, and Dean Napolitano as her boyfriend Ben (the red-haired chick and dark-haired fella pictured together). One of the most experienced actors in the movie is Dan Cox, who plays the patriarch of the family (he's held small roles in movies such as The Secret Life of Bees, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, and TV shows like One Tree Hill and Matlock.) And a newcomer to the big screen, but a well-known personality, Janine Davis plays the role of Bonita, the local convenience store clerk.
