‘Term Life’ leaves lasting improvements

by W. Winston Skinner

“Term Life” brought movie stars Vince Vaughn and Peter Billingsley to Coweta County.

The movie itself left behind some improvements for Grantville, where several scenes were filmed. According to Grantville Mayor Jim Sells, the cast and crew of the film enjoyed their interactions with locals.

“Everybody had nice things to say about Grantville,” Sells said.

The mayor talked about how the movie’s presence in town left behind paint and other upgrades. “They changed the appearance of the entire downtown,” he said – leaving flags, awnings and plants that continue to enhance the retail district.

“It was very beneficial to have them here,” he said. “They spent a lot of money in our community.”

A gazebo “that sells for $3,000” is among the reminders of “Term Life.”

Now there is the wait until the movie is in theaters. “They made several of our citizens movie stars, we hope,” Sells said.
