The spotlight will be shining on Akron as director, actor and producer Corbin Bernsen plans to film his new movie in the city on March 12.
Bernsen says the new movie, "3 Day Test," is centered around a man who loses control of his family due to technology of the fast pace of life. The three-day test is an idea presented to the main character.
The test will see how a family can survive inside their home without any power, electricity and water.
"Nobody comes in your house, nobody leaves. Windows closed, doors closed. Can you and your family survive for 72 hours if you had to," said Bernsen.
He says he found the perfect home in Akron to film the movie, but Bernsen did not disclose the exact location.
"A wonderful family is going to let us use their house. It's everything I wrote in my screenplay 30 years ago."
Bernsen is in Akron this week working on the national release of "25 Hill" because this year will mark the 75th anniversary of the All American Soap Box Derby.
"I want Akron to benefit. You know, I love it here. I have so many friends here now and I have to protect my reputation here, so I want to make sure it does well," said Bernsen.
