Guisela Moro is a long time actress but wants to pursue her true passion, producing.

She recently wrote a screenplay called "Hollow Creek" and plans to shoot the movie in West Virginia.

This weekend she is scouting locations in Wood and Ritchie counties. Moro says a drive through the area gave her inspiration for the story.

"I just fell in love with the scenery and the locations. And I was just so impressed with the architecture actually of the entire area and that's how I thought of the story. Hollow creek is a horror, thriller. Stephen King style. I actually got inspired by the place," says Moro.

Moro plans to start production in October and wants to use local actors.

    Hello, my name is Angie and I'm from Ritchie County (MacFarlan) near Smithville on Rt.47. My family still lives in the area. I never tried to act but I'd live to try out for it. When is auditions and where. Hope I hear from you.

    Heard her talk about it at Chams... It was the scenery, not the stereotypes.

    wow. this is cool. which i could reach this person i grew up on a dead end road in wood county. it was called the hollow road. we had a murder there in the early 80`s along with a number of odd things. it would be so cool to have that location as a movie. hard to beat a place for a horror movie thats had a murder a rape. and a lot of other things.

    Would be interesting to know the back story of the movie as to why our area was so inspiring. Fingers crossed it isn't a stereotypical WV vibe

      Being so sick and tired of West Virginians being slammed in the media, I’m tempted to message her on facebook....
