CHICKAMAUGA — A Christmas movie is filming in Walker County, and the film’s producers are looking for local extras.
The Farmer and The Belle is about a New York City fashion model who spends the holidays in a small town and falls in love with a childhood pen pal/farmer. She helps her friend save his hometown’s “SantaLand” and learns that true beauty comes from the heart. Jenn Gotzon Chandler (Frost/Nixon, God’s Not Dead 2), Corbin Bernsen (Major League, LA Law) and John Schneider (The Dukes of Hazzard, Smallville) are among the credited cast.
