David & Christina Arquette plan to film thriller in Jonesboro area, braving COVID-19


Deadline.com out of Los Angeles is reporting that David Arquette (pictured above, left), and his wife, Christina McLarty Arquette, are prepping to film a thriller in the Jonesboro area within the next few weeks, despite the COVID-19 crisis.

In an interview with Deadline, David Arquette said the movie, “Ghosts of the Ozarks,” is being prepped with COVID-19 guidelines in mind.

“We have everything in line; we have the ability to be able to still produce things with a reasonable expectation of social distancing, take everybody’s temperature, and we have flexibility with quarantining people before they get there,” Arquette — whose film roles include “Scream,” “Never Been Kissed,” “Bone Tomahawk,” “Wild Bill,” and the original “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” — told the magazine.

Actor and director Tim Blake Nelson  (pictured above, right) — from HBO’s “Watchmen” and “Westworld” as well as the films “Holes,” “Syriana,” “Lincoln,” “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs,” and “Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?” — will star in the film with Arquette.

David’s wife, Christina McLarty Arquette, is originally from Hope, Ark. The two have previously produced a horror movie in Jonesboro called “12-Hour Shift.” The movie was scheduled to premiere at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, which has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
