The film might be called SMALL TOWN CRIME but the party was a huge family affair. Star Octavia Spencer (HIDDEN FIGURES, THE HELP) basically art directed the cast and crew photo shoot throughout the venue. Joining Spencer were cast mates including John Hawkes (AMERICAN GANGSTER); Dale Dickey (HELL OR HIGH WATER); Don Harvey (CASUALTIES OF WAR); Jeremy Ratchford (Cold Case); James Lafferty (Underground); Stefanie Scott (INSIDIOUS 3); Caity Lotz (THE MACHINE); Robyn Lively (KARATE KID III) and Michael Vartan (Alias).
