Harrison Ford to Shoot Major Motion Picture About Jackie Robinson

From Chattanooga WRCB:

Mr. Indiana Jones, also known as Harrison Ford, will be shooting his next feature film in the Scenic City.

More specifically, the shoot will happen at historic Engel Stadium, the former home to the Negro League. It makes sense, because it’s a film about Jackie Robinson, the first African-American to play in the major leagues.

…the movie will be shot in both north Georgia and Chattanooga. Harrison Ford will be on location, as they plan to start shooting this spring….Legendary Pictures plans to spend anywhere from $4 to $10-million dollars in Chattanooga alone.

Chadwick Boseman has been cast as Jackie Robinson.
