It's no accident that we are now being known as 'Hollywood of the South' here in Louisiana. We have so many movie and tv shows that are now being filmed here that it's hard to keep up! Our friends at Only in Louisiana have reminded me of some of my favorite movies, and where they were filmed here in the Bayou State! The list below is only a fraction of the famous movies that were made here, but they still have that 'only in Louisiana' vibe. Let us know if you can think of any more.
