Two Movies Filming In Mobile This Month

August 30, 2015

Mobile is booming right now! With two feature films and a TV series being shot in town, pretty soon every inch of Mobile will end up on the screen. First up, we have the movie ‘Here Comes Rusty’. It stars Fred Willard.

Here Comes Rusty is about a dog track owner who makes the bet of his life to save his dying business. Rusty, by the way, is the name of the rabbit that the dogs chase on the track. He’s kind of their mascot.

There’s lots of music in the film, so naturally, one of their locations was Top of The Bay in Daphne.
