Feature film “Luke and Jo” begins shooting in Asheville, Dec. 1

Press release from filmmakers:

Solis Films is making a new feature film in Asheville, NC, called LUKE AND JO. Shooting will begin on Thursday, December 1, 2016. Featuring local cast and actor Erik Odom,who played “Peter” in the ultra-popular TWILIGHT series, the film will wrap on December 16, 2016. “Honestly, I’ve never been more excited to make a movie in my life,” says Director Joshua Overbay.

The film will be shot at various locations in Black Mountain, Old Fort, and Asheville, NC, which is where Solis Films is based. “Asheville provides a beautiful backdrop for the movie. It’s also a wonderful community that we not only love, but are excited to partner with to bring the film to life,” says Producer and Director of Photography Nathaniel Glass.

LUKE AND JO explores the power and complexity of human connection as it tracks two people who collide at the lowest point in their lives during a winter film festival: Luke is about to implode, while Jo is nearing an explosion. As their bizarre and unexpected week unfolds, their lives become progressively intertwined — ultimately revealing the depth of their scars, their present fears, and the meaning of trust.

Solis Films’ first feature film, AS IT IS IN HEAVEN, went on play in theaters across the country, including New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Seattle, and New Orleans. It was chosen by The New York Times as a “Critic’s Pick,” and received high praise from The Hollywood Reporter, Village Voice, the Chicago Sun-Times, RogerEbert.com, the Seattle Times, and other major publications.
