John Travolta movie begins filming in central Ohio

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A crew filming a new John Travolta movie has started work in Columbus.

On Wednesday, a fictional governor played by actor Patrick St. Esprit was filmed on the west steps of the Ohio Statehouse as part of the movie called “I Am Wrath.” He was joined by more than 100 extras who stood for several hours in 45-degree weather for multiple takes. Travolta wasn’t in the scene.

The Columbus Dispatch ( ) reports that the crew also was scheduled to film inside the Statehouse, and then move on to other locations in Columbus. Filming on the $10 million project is expected to last into mid-April.

Travolta is portraying a man out for justice after a group of corrupt policemen are unable to catch his wife’s killer.
