Horror movie fans in Northeast Ohio will want to keep their eyes peeled for an upcoming film set in Akron and Cleveland.

“Copley Road” is a horror anthology series that will consist of five short films that will tie themselves together around a central plot. The series will follow five strangers and how their lives intersect following a paranormal experience involving a fatal hit-and-run on none other than Copley Road.

Jason Woods, the writer, director and executive producer is returning home to Northeast Ohio to shoot the horror film.

Born and raised in Akron, Woods moved to Los Angeles to pursue his career. He said it was his childhood dream to film in his hometown and now that the opportunity has presented itself, he is making those dreams come true.

“We’re doing this film, but this film is part of a phase of a bigger vision. We’re trying to create a platform to help inspire and empower people in Ohio, specifically the Cleveland-Akron area, to be able to pursue their dreams,” Woods said.

The Buchtel High School graduate said the film is in its pre-production phase right now, but filming has been scheduled for 2020. Read more here >>.
