"Will To Succeed," a major motion picture reportedly starring Helen Hunt, will begin filming in Chattanooga in next few weeks, according to Missy Crutchfield, city administrator of the Department of Education, Art and Culture.
"This is huge," she said. "It will have a bigger impact on the city than 'Water for Elephants' did because it is the first feature film to be shot entirely, or almost entirely, here."
She said the film is set in the 1970s and is centered around a high school. She could not release locations for the filming, but did say the Chattanooga Film Commission's Facebook page had clues. The page features pictures and maps of Baylor School.
"It is set at a prep school," Crutchfield said.
