Small northeast Missouri town part of new movie

Saturday, July 13, 2013 | 3:28 p.m. CDT

EDINA — Too bad tiny Edina doesn't have a movie theater, because the town itself is about to make it to the big screen.

The remote northeast Missouri town of 1,200 residents offers the sort of rural remoteness that brought independent film director Chris Grega to the town square to shoot scenes for his suspense horror film, "Sound of Nothing." The film will premiere July 18 at the Tivoli Theatre in St. Louis as part of the St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase.

Grega told the Quincy (Ill.) Herald-Whig that he needed a location to portray what he described as a certain vacancy but in a once-flourishing community. He describes the movie as a post-apocalyptic father-daughter story.

Grega shot most of the scenes in the St. Louis area.
