Film crews are in Macon shooting scenes for the movie, “42”. The Jackie Robinson biopic stars newcomer Chadwick Boseman, as well as Harrison Ford, and Christopher Meloni. Around 300 crew members will be in Macon for two weeks shooting scenes at historic Luther Williams Field, Central City Park, and the Terminal Station. In March another baseball-themed movie, “Trouble With The Curve” starring Clint Eastwood shot in Macon.
