TUNNEL HILL, GA (WRCB) -

A historic railroad tunnel in Whitfield County has been chosen as a filming location for a major motion picture.

The tunnel, located in Tunnel Hill, was built in the 1850s to allow trains to pass through Chetoogeta Mountain.

The Dalton Convention & Visitors Bureau isn’t saying much about the project.

However, Anthony Luke, Marketing Manager for the CVB, and Camera Ready Liaison for Whitfield County and Georgia Film issued the following statement:

“We are very excited about the Tunnel being chosen as a location in the movie. We can’t say much about the scene, but I can tell you that the folks with the production company were amazed by the Tunnel. They visited the location numerous times, driving up from Atlanta, bringing more and more people each time they came. From what we were told, the Tunnel quickly became popular conversation with the film crew.”

The movie, which is set for release in 2019, began filming in June.

The filming dates for the scene in Tunnel Hill have not been released.

    Good Tuesday.  We are all under a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY and some of us under a WIND CHILL ADVISORY through the day. It will be cold all day with high temperatures only reaching the upper 20s and low 30s.  These high temps will be reached early on at about noon, and then temps will be dropping through the afternoon as a cold front works through.
