CHICKAMAUGA, Ga. (WRCB) - A family in North Georgia is about to become part of movie history. Carol Cross says her husband and his brother own the home where scenes of the movie Water for Elephants will be shot later on this week.
The Cross family says they were approached about the film in the spring. Since that time numerous film crews have traveled back and forth to Chickamauga, Georgia to scout and prepare the site.
The family says crews spent months and miles on the interstate trying to find the perfect location to shoot the scenes dating back to the 1930's.
Channel 3 Eyewitness News has learned actor Robert Pattinson, famous for the Twilight movie series, will be coming to Chickamauga later this week to film scenes.
Much of the equipment used to shoot the movie is being held at the Chattanooga Choo Choo hotel.
We have also learned the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum will also be a part of the movie history.
