Wish You Well Considering Alleghany Highlands and Giles County for Movie Location

Wish You Well Considering Alleghany Highlands and Giles County for Movie Location
Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia (April 9, 2012) –Alleghany Highlands and Giles County are both being considered as the main location for the featurefilm Wish You Well.  The movie is based on the novel by bestselling author David Baldacci and will be filmed later this year.  Life Out Loud Films launched a search throughout Southwest Virginia in November to find both an ideal 1940’s town and an enthusiastic, supportive, and passionate community.  15 different counties in Virginia submitted packages before the team narrowed the selection down to four-Alleghany Highlands, Botetourt, Giles, and Smyth.
The Wish You Well team was overwhelmed by the support of the prospective towns’ chambers, officials, and business owners along with the immensely detailed packages each presented to showcase theirtown.  Many factors including both aesthetics and logistics played a role in a decision that the team deemed “extremely hard to make.”  Alleghany Highlands and Giles both rose to the top as potential locations and an extended team will make additional visits to these towns later this month in order to make a final decision.
The film is a collaboration between Life Out Loud Films, Baldacci Entertainment, and Copper Beech Productions.  For more information about Wish You Well go to: www.lifeoutloudfilms.com or about David Baldacci visit: www.davidbaldacci.com.
