Newburgh's own Rosenbaum returns to Tri-State for new movie

NEWBURGH, IN (WFIE) - From Newburgh to Hollywood to Newburgh.

Actor Michael Rosenbaum, who grew up in Newburgh, is back and he brought the cameras with him.

He's in the Tri-State shooting a movie called 'Old Days.'

This is literally the old days for Rosenbaum.

He went to Castle High School, where he was in several plays, and now he's back with a Hollywood camera crew.

Crews have been adjusting the lights and the set for a shoot that will take place in the Castle High School gym Thursday night.

Earlier Thursday night, we were outside on the football field.

The cast was shooting a flashback scene. To add more local flavor to this movie, some members of the Castle High School Football team were used as extras.

Michael tells 14 News it has always been his dream to come back home and shoot a movie.

He wrote the script, is directing and starring in the film.

He says there's no place he would rather shoot this.

"I just wanted to write something about growing up and you come back here and you go, it's so easy, it's easier out here. You go out west and everybody is so busy and it's all about the business and you come back here and you go, 'I'm going to go have a sonic burger or some Pizza King.' It's really a dream come true. I have to pinch myself every 10 minutes and go, 'I'm actually filming a movie in Newburgh, Indiana,'" Rosenbaum told 14 News.

Our crew plans to hang around while filming resumes at Castle High School and we'll have much more tomorrow on 14 News.
