Viewfinder: On a Movie Set in Tucker
Richard Dreyfuss, Geena Davis, James Woods and Ellen Burstyn are in "Coma," a medical thriller shooting now in Tucker.
A doctor begins to suspect that something is amiss when healthy patients begin to fall into comas.
That's how IMDB describes the storyline of "Coma," a mini series currently being filmed in Tucker that will premiere on A&E on Memorial Day. The four-hour movie stars Richard Dreyfuss, Geena Davis, James Woods and Ellen Burstyn, and is produced by Hollywood heavyweights Ridley Scott, Tony Scott and David Zucker for Sony Pictures Television.
"Coma" is based on the bestseller by Robin Cook and was previously made into a theatrical film in 1978 starring Michael Douglas and Genevieve Bujold. It was directed by Michael Crichton, who also wrote the screenplay.
Tucker Patch paid a visit this week to the set on Hugh Howell Road (in the old Sears office building) and tried to stay out of the way of the film cameras.
