Lifetime Channel Films Christmas Movie in Lafayette
Louisiana has become known as the "Hollywood of the South" over the last few years with all the tax incentives for the production companies. We've seen tons of movies filmed all over the state and Acadiana has gotten its fair share.
The folks at Le Barn Rouge, an event venue on Rue Du Belier in Lafayette, recently unveiled that their property had recently been used for the filming of a movie.
The movie is called "Hometown Christmas" and it was filmed at Le Barn Rouge this past July and August. It will air on December 16, 2018 at 7 pm on the Lifetime Channel.
The movie stars Beverley Mitchell, Stephen Colletti, Melissa Gilbert and Danny Boaz among others.
Below is the official synopsis of the film according to Entertainment Weekly:
Back in Louisiana for Christmas, Noelle Collins (Mitchell) has big plans to resurrect the town’s live nativity, a beloved tradition that her late mother used to put on. Things become complicated, however, when Noelle runs into her high school sweetheart, Nick Russell (Colletti), a rising baseball star also back home due to a recent injury. Still feeling the burn from their senior year break-up, their lives are pushed together even further when they learn their parents share an attraction and want to be more than just friends. When things begin to fall apart with the live nativity, Nick and Noelle reluctantly team up to pull off the show and find themselves growing close, uncovering a hometown love for each other and the joy of Christmas that both never really faded away.
Le Barn Rouge posted some behind-the-scene photos of the filming on their Facebook page. Check it out here.
