BATON ROUGE (NBC33) - There's a buzz at the movie theatres today about Battle LA. The Sci-Fi Action Thriller which was filmed in Louisiana and mostly in Baton Rouge.
There was even some local talent in the movie.
Margaret Lawhon was a native Louisianian in Battle LA. She's one of several tv reporters in the movie. You can hear her in the trailer and, actually get to see her as well.
Lawhon spent several years as a TV anchor in Shreveport and Baton Rouge. Now for the past two decades she's taken her reporting talents to the big screen.
She said she's thrilled to be part of such a major production and the fact that it was filmed here makes it even better.
"What's really been fun about this particular film is that so much of it was done here in Baton Rouge. Some of it was done in Shreveport, but it's really to Baton Rouge's credit, we've got a film that's this big, and I think it's going to be successful nationwide, I certainly hope so."
