Residents in Franklin may have seen film crews out and about as a local production company works on making a movie slated to premiere in summer 2022.

Franklin-based company Called Higher Studios has been filming in locations such as Thompson's Station, Hillsboro United Methodist Church in Leiper's Fork and Westhaven in Franklin.

The movie, titled "Camp Hideout," is described as a "'Home Alone'-style" family comedy featuring Ethan Drew as Noah, a 14-year old boy who encounters bad guys from his past summers at camp. Other stars include Corbin Bleu from Disney's "High School Musical" and "Back to the Future"'s Christoper Lloyd.

The movie will also feature local child actors from Williamson County, according to the production company.

"We're thrilled with that cast we've put together for 'Camp Hideout'—seasoned talent like Christopher Lloyd and Corbin Bleu, fresh faces like Ethan Drew, [and] local talent from Nashville and Williamson County—actors like Tic Tac Toy stars Addy Maxwell and Maya Maxwell who have over 5 million followers on YouTube, as well as Josh Childs, Josh Inocalla, Elle Wesley and Zion Wyatt," Called Higher Studio CEO Jason Brown said. "We're grateful for the support we've received in Williamson County and grateful that we need to look no farther than our own backyards to find picturesque backdrops like Deer Run in Thompson's Station, Hillsboro United Methodist Church in Leiper's Fork and Westhaven in Franklin."

The movie is also still raising funding to complete production on the film. Those interested in investing in the studio can find more information here.
