Harness Movie to Shoot at Lebanon
Emilio Estevez, star of the "Mighty Ducks" series of films, announced that his next project will be a harness racing film set near Cincinnati.
Estevez, 50, will begin filming "Johnny Longshot," a story about a retired jockey making a comeback in the sulky sport, next spring, primarily at Lebanon Raceway.
The actor said he got the idea for the story when watching harness racing at a sports betting parlor with his father, actor Martin Sheen, who is from Dayton, Ohio. The film will hire 1,500 actors, extras and crew during the filming, which will use mostly local help.
