Part Of Movie Shot At South Of The Border

Shooting was held at South of the Border last week for Crackerjack, a full-length independent family film executive produced by legendary Southern actor and blue-collar comedian Jeff Foxworthy.
The quirky Southern comedy unfolds largely on the ball field and follows young Bill “Crackerjack” Bailey as he struggles with commitment and responsibility.
Crackerjack is rich with bullpen vernacular, Southern heritage, and unconventional twists for a romantic comedy. Ever the lovable loser, Bailey stumbles through a series of mishaps on his road to redemption and fatherhood. Played by rising star Wes Murphy (Boys of Summerville), Crackerjack’s challenges on the ball field mimic those in his life.
“Crackerjack presents Southern culture by mere tapestry,” explains lead producer Mil Cannon, a Savannah native, award-winning filmmaker, and founder of Atlanta-based Imagemil. “It includes staples of Southern culture such as Golden Corral, Piggly Wiggly, the legendary Year One Bandit cars from Smokey and the Bandit” and of course the classic “Cracker Jacks.” Crackerjack is written and directed by Bryan Coley, founder and artistic director of Atlanta-based Art
Within, an organization that integrates faith and art to impact contemporary culture. Additional producers are Darren Mooreman and Matt Pope of Summerset Productions.
Crackerjack is rated PG-13. More information on the film can be found at
