Phenix City native working in LA needs your help to film new movie in Columbus

A Phenix City native living in California wants local residents to help make a faith-based feature film in Columbus this fall.

“The Inheritance” promises to be a a family-friendly comedy about a 30-year-old, one-hit-wonder rock star named Kasey, who returns home, along with her estranged siblings, to bury their mother and claim their inheritance. They discover that the deed to the entire estate is hidden on the property, and the first one to find it inherits everything. But as she races her siblings, the scavenger hunt for the deed leads Kasey and her siblings to a revelation.

“The film deals with the biblical theme of ‘You can’t take it with you,’” co-producer Meredith Riley Stewart, a 1997 graduate of Central High School, told the Ledger-Enquirer,“and also reminds us that our true inheritance in life is not money or an estate but the people that we are blessed to call our family”

The film’s limited liability company has signed a contract with the Columbus Visitors Bureau, doing business as VisitColumbusGA, Stewart said, so donations and in-kind contributions to the film project can be tax deductible. Investors in the project would contribute to the film’s LLC, meaning they couldn’t take a tax deduction but they could take a share of profits.

VisitColumbusGA president and CEO Peter Bowden told the Ledger-Enquirer that the Columbus Film Commission also can help film projects obtain city permits, scout locations and identify local resources, such as catering, transportation and hotels.
