While major productions have slowed in Louisiana in the past year, there are a number of exciting films on the fall slate that were shot in the New Orleans and Baton Rouge areas. Take a look below at four upcoming films:
When the Bough Breaks (Sept 9): Shot in New Orleans and Slidell, this thriller tells the story of a soon-to-be surrogate mom who becomes obsessed with the baby’s father. Morris Chestnut, Jazz Sinclair, and Regina Hall star.
The Magnificent Seven (Sept 23): This remake of the Yul Brenner classic built a small Western town outside of Baton Rouge. Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, and Ethan Hawke star in this film directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, The Equalizer).
Deepwater Horizon (Sept 30): This production constructed a six-story oil rig on the grounds of Six Flags in New Orleans East to tell the tale of the fateful oil rig disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. Mark Wahlberg stars in the film directed by Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights, Lone Survivor).
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (Oct. 21): Superstar Tom Cruise came to town to shoot the sequel to his 2012 hit Jack Reacher. Downtown locations doubled for Washington, D.C. in this thriller directed by Ed Zwick (Glory).
