Hartselle area in new movie

Scenes from the Hartselle area can be seen in “Dormant,” a new film written, directed and produced by Julian “Jay” Burton of Harvest.

The suspense thriller has one scene of a motorcycle rider on Red Bank Road in the Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge. Other scenes were made inside and outside of the home of Jose Cortez in Hartselle.

Cortez has an acting role in the film. Three of its other actors live in Huntsville.

Burton said the film was produced by Bermuda Image LLC and  was in production for six months. It will be released in the mainstream market at Monaco Pictures in Huntsville later this month.

The film is a prequel to the graphic novel “Bermuda City,” which is scheduled to be published later this year under the name of Red Crow Comics LLC.

Burton has produced five other films.
