"Find A Way" filming in NC inspired by high school football star

ELON, NC (WBTV) -North Carolina continues to gain popularity as a location for filming motion pictures.

Find A Way: Don't Eat the Devil's Dog Food  is being directed by esteemed actor Burgess Jenkins (Remember the Titans), and is starring multiple members of his Carolina Actors Group, including writer, executive producer and star Cornelius Muller.

Casting began in January and Friday night hundreds of extras filled Rhodes Stadium at Elon University for the football game opening scene of the movie.

The film is based on a fictional character inspired by the life of Harry Cohen. The Williams High School star quarterback died in September 2011 after taking a pain medicine prescribed to his grandmother. Cohen's teammates and those that knew him say they remember the light that shined through his smile. And he didn't limit himself to hanging out with just the cool kids.

Find A Way is set to premier in the spring. For more information you can visit http://www.corneliusmullerproductions.com
