Movie to be filmed in Amarillo

Amarillo will look a bit like Hollywood this fall.

It was chosen to be the backdrop of a new movie.

The movie Cottonwood is set to be filmed sometime in September.

It is based on strained race relations of the 1930s and how one influential man began to pave a road toward acceptance.

On August 07, 2012, the writer, producer, executive producer and director unveiled that the movie will be filmed in Amarillo.

The director says this story is set in the depression era of West Texas.

This has the potential to bring national attention to Amarillo.

They are hoping Cottonwood will appeal to all age groups.
