BLOOMINGTON -- An area native turned Hollywood actor returned home for a project putting his hometown in the spotlight. From now until July, this film crew is shooting a movie about music called We Had This Band. It's set to play in cities nationwide.

The film focuses on a man in the music business who leaves California to return home to the twin cities. The movie uses local places and people to tell the story. The crew plans to submit its work to the Independent Film Festival Circuit and have it screen in cities like New York, LA and, of course, Bloomington-Normal.
