Austin, Texas...Movie Town?

While many people continue to talk about the boom in filming being done in Atlanta, there is another city making a name for itself as well. That city is Austin, Texas. Many of you may be surprised to learn that Austin's history in cinema is vast and goes back as far as the 1970's! It started with a movie called “Eggshells”, a horror movie. From there, Austin has played host to some memorable productions throughout the years, even decades! Some honorable mentions are “Texas Chainsaw Massacre”, “Johnny Be Good”, “Dazed and Confused”, “What's Eating Gilbert Grape” and the cult classic “Office Space”. These titles are just a drop in the bucket of Austin's rich movie history. In just a few months, Terrance Malick's “Song to Song” will open. This movie boasts an all-star cast and was shot in Austin. The movie is described as being a modern love story set against the Austin, Texas music scene, two entangled couples — struggling songwriters Faye and BV, and music mogul Cook and the waitress whom he ensnares — chase success through a rock ‘n’ roll landscape of seduction and betrayal. Ryan Gosling, Michael Fassbender, Natalie Portman and Christian Bale have been tied to the film.
