Shooting begins in Jackson for biopic on James Brown

jamesBrown_1411852cJACKSON — Filming is underway in Jackson for the James Brown biopic “Get On Up.”

Extras arrived last week at Thalia Mara Hall, where they were transformed into fans from concert scenes in various time periods.

Details of the productions are being kept under wraps, but Trish Hoffman, executive producer of the film, said filming is going great.

Hoffman tells The Clarion-Ledger with another two and a half weeks of filming left, Jacksonians can expect to feel the film crew’s presence more and more.

Capitol Street, several Jackson restaurants and the Mississippi Coliseum are a few locations where filming is planned.

“Get On Up” began filming in Natchez in November and picked up in Jackson this month.
