A Hollywood movie being filmed in the North Carolina mountains is underway.

Crews have already shot some scenes in small towns near Asheville in Buncombe County.

“The World Made Straight” is about a Civil War massacre that happened in the area.

Even though it stars some big names, the producer said locals are playing a strong supporting role.

“I think people have been really accommodating. I mean, it’s the south. What can I say? Everybody’s just been wonderful,” said producer Todd Laborowski.

The movie stars Haley Joel Osment and Noah Wyle.

It is based on a novel written by a Western Carolina University professor.
