Oscar-nominated actor Michael Shannon is in Northeast Ohio shooting a new film.
The actor, who picked up an Oscar nod for playing the bizarre dinner guest in “Revolutionary Road,” will be here for the next month filming an untitled drama.
The film is being directed by Jeff Nichols (“Shotgun Stories”), and produced by Chagrin Falls native Tyler Davidson.
Davidson has been good to Northeast Ohio. He also was a producer on “The Year That Trembled,” based on the Scott Lax novel, which was shot here, and his next film, “Swedish Auto,” was the opening night feature at the Cleveland International Film Festival in 2007.
The new movie, which co-stars Jessica Chastain and Kathy Baker, is scheduled to shoot in Chardon, Elyria, Grafton, and LaGrange.
