News


CANTON, Ga. -- Movie filming is in full swing around metro Atlanta and now it appears Cherokee County is getting in on the action with a silver screen heavy-weight.

Canton Police posted a press release from 20th Century Fox that announces filming for the movie "Hidden Figures."

According to Internet Movie Database (IMDb), the Theodore Melfi-directed film stars Kevin Costner, Taraji P. Henson and Octavia Spencer and tells the story of a team of Afircan-American women who provided NASA with important mathematical data needed to launch the program's first successful space missions.

Officials with the filming agency's location's department are asking shoppers and visitors to avoid leaving modern cars and appliances on the affected streets during filming.

Canton police will be providing intermittent traffic control in the area for the day of filming, slated for March 14.
