A movie inspired by a 2002 train derailment in Potterville that forced the town's residents to evacuate for a week will be filmed in Potterville this spring and summer. The movie's director, Sam Davis, is from Potterville and remembers the chaos. He was ten years old at the time.
Davis, who helped produce the Oscar-nominated film, "Period. End of Sentence.," will be at Sunday night's Academy Awards.
But last weekend, he set out to fill some of his new movie's roles with locals. The new movie will be called "Cents," and the casting call, held Saturday February 16th, at Potterville High School, brought out more than seven times the number of people he expected to show.
