Major Dodson Roped in For Tyson’s Run

Popular teen actor Major Dodson, who has made a name for himself after appearing in well-received television series such as The Walking Dead, American Horror Story and apocalyptic thriller movie named Left Behind (2014), is all set to play a pivotal part in the indie film Tyson’s Run. The movie has been written by famed writer Kim Bass who will direct it as well. Bass, who rose to fame after creating television sitcom Sister, Sister and writing on In Living Color, has previously helmed Junkyard Dog (2010) starring Vivica A. Fox, and action entertainer Kill Speed (2010).

Talking about the storyline of Tyson’s Run, the film revolves around a boy called Tyson who is autistic. He tries everything possible to connect with his father. He even trains himself for a marathon with the defamed former champion. Apart from writing and directing the movie, Bass is also co-producing it with Deanna Shapiro, the former actress, and producer is known for The Legend of Cryin’ Ryan (1998), Day of Days (2017) and Kill Speed (2010). John Cappetta will join the project as executive producer.

Casting for other important character is almost locked, and if all goes well, the makers will take Tyson’s Run to the shooting floor next month.

Thanks to the state’s film, television and digital tax credit, Georgia has become one of the top spots to make movies and television programs. Other movies that have filmed scenes in Cobb County include, “I, Tonya,” starring Margot Robbie, “A Bad Moms Christmas,” with Mila Kunis, Ben Stiller’s “The Watch,” and “Game Night,” with Jason Bateman.
