BALTIMORE, Md. - An independent movie will begin filming in Ocean City next month.
"Ping Pong Summer," a comedy, is written and will be directed by Maryland native Michael Tully. The cast includes Susan Sarandon, Amy Sedaris and John Hannah.
The movie takes place during the 1980s and is based on Tully's annual vacations.
The Maryland Film Office says production could result in the hiring of 90 local crew, actors and extras, and the purchase or renting of goods and services from some 140 Maryland businesses.
