Movie being filmed in Crowley
By Katherine Miller
CROWLEY – LaGrange grocery store in Crowley was full of excitement this past Thursday and Friday, when scenes from a movie entitled “Chrome Angels” were shot inside and around the store. The movie is, as described by members of the crew, to be “a Thelma and Louise meets the Terminator,” type movie.
The movie falls under the Sci-Fi category, while the main plot consists of a group of women bikers that ride into a town occupied by robots.
Charles Broussard, manager of La Grange, said that they were contacted when the production company came to City Hall seeking an area grocery store to use as a location site. City Hall then contacted the store managers and owners for permission. “They have been busy for the past two full days shooting scenes for the movie,” Broussard informed.
Babette Moreau, formerly of Crowley, was one of the chosen few who participated in the project. “This is my second time being an extra in one of these locally shot films,” she said. “I had a lot of fun in the first one, where I played as a vampire in Wolves’ Bayne, so I decided to participate in this one also.”
“I play a part as a cashier in this upcoming movie,” Moreau said excitedly.
When asked what being an extra entailed, Moreau informed that all the extras were kept on location, and were called up when needed. She, as well as others, without hesitation, said that if asked to be an extra in upcoming movie, replied, “Oh yeah, definitely.”
Chrome Angels is due to be released some time next year.
