The “Free State of Jones” film crew wrapped up the last day of footage in the Washington area Tuesday.


With all of the hype surrounding Hollywood arriving in Washington, no one would be able to tell the difference from any other day, outside of two Washington police officers stopping traffic to allow members of the movie crew to cross Highway 103.

St. John’s Church on North Church Street was the filming location, but the public was asked to stay at least 50 yards away from the set.

Production assistants and members of the set crew were strewn throughout the area, communicating with each other on walkie-talkies. The church was draped with a black tarp to control the lighting for filming.

Lead actor Matthew McConaughey arrived at the set at around 11:15 a.m. before the filming for the day began.

Despite the film’s exclusivity from the public, Washington Mayor Joseph Pitre said, the movie’s presence will be a benefit.

“It’s good for the town,” Pitre said. “Anytime you can get publicity for the city, it is good. This brings a positive economic impact to our town as well.”

Alex Worman, in charge of public relations for “Free State” said Washington was chosen as a place to shoot some of the movie because of its historical value.

Jack Montague, a production assistant, said McConaughey and director Gary Ross are history buffs who wanted to get some of “Free State” filmed in Washington.

On Monday, extras were cast and the outside scenes involving extras were shot. Tuesday’s work consisted of scenes inside of the church, including one that involved gunshots.

“Free State” stars McConaughey as defiant Southern farmer Newt Knight and tells the story of Knight and his armed rebellion against the Confederacy. Opposed to both slavery and secession, Knight launched an uprising of poor white farmers that led Jones County, Mississippi, to secede from the Confederacy, creating a “Free State of Jones.” His relationship and post-war marriage to a former slave, Rachel Knight, effectively established the region’s first mixed-race community.

Pitre said having “Free State” in Washington is big and that he would consider welcoming more films to come there in the future.

“We would be open to it,” he said. “Hopefully this will open up more people’s eyes about the importance of historic preservation. I think people participating and benefiting from this will have a greater appreciation for preservation.”

Academy Award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey delivered an inspiring message to graduates at the University of Houston last week, warning them not to fall into the “entitlement trap.”

Speaking at the University of Houston commencement ceremony, the “Dallas Buyers Club” actor did not sugarcoat his message for the graduates.

“Life’s not fair, it never was, it isn’t now and it won’t ever be,” McConaughey said Friday.

The Texas native added, “Do not fall into the trap, the entitlement trap, of feeling like you’re a victim. You are not.”

McConaughey also spoke about the value of the degree.

“It’s not a ticket, it’s not a voucher, it’s not a free pass, so I ask the question: what does your college degree mean?” he said.

According to reports, McConaughey received a standing ovation from graduates and those attending the ceremony.

According to Point of Geeks website, the 45-year-old is in “basic talks” with the studio, reports

McConaughey previously confirmed he had been eyed by both Marvel and Warner Bros to star in superhero movies.

“I’ve read some Marvel and DC scripts and I’ve talked about working with them on some scripts, none of which I’ll share with with you what they are – or were. Yeah, I’ve circled some of those. Nothing has been right for me yet. But I’m sure open to it,” he said.

According to the website, it’s not surprising for Marvel to target such an A-list actor as Norman Osborn character’s overall prominence in the comics has risen over the past decade.

While it is unclear to what extent Sony and Marvel intend to include Norman Osborn in Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) in the future, in recent years the villain character has been crucial as an “anti-hero” in the comics.

“Spider-Man” reboot is scheduled for a 2017 release. Previously, Asa Butterfield, Nat Wolff, Tom Holland, Timothee Chalamet and Liam James were reportedly some of the candidates to take the role of Peter Parker.
