JOPLIN, Mo. – A Southwest Missouri native is bringing Hollywood to the region.

According to a press release, Jack Truman, a native of Lamar and Joplin, is returning to the area to shoot a low-budget comedy film about a mother and son’s junk store in a small southern town. The film will be called Junk Store and is a modern day version of Sanford and Son meets Clerks.

Truman, an award-winning independent filmmaker and 30 year veteran of television, film and stage, says he wanted to share the film with a part of his life.

““I wanted to come back home and share with the film world a part of life that I come from,” says Truman. “Most people don't know about this part of the country. I want to give something back to the area where I grew up, and at the same time, make an original film that will entertain people and show them how real people are. It's not hard to make a film that you're passionate about. Especially when that film is about a life that you know.”

Shooting for the film begins late summer, according to the release. Locals will be cast for speaking roles and extras in the film and additional members will be needed to help with the crew.
