Come on, Get Real! Why even put all of this crap in the paper about your "late husband" when you KNOW he had filed for divorce from you! He was living with another woman! How many police reports are on file because of him having them around her? LMAO! And all you kept telling the kids is that he was going to be a millionaire and you wasn't going to get any of it. I hope those movie directors read this and take you out! You are an embarrassment to our community!

sooooo "laughingoutloud" you're saying that because they were having marital problems that she can't still wish he was here to appreciate his truck and children being in a movie with an actor he admired? ridiculous....sounds like you're a little too into someone else's business for your own good....and a little jealous too!!!! and why would they read your immature rant and decide she isn't worthy of being an extra in a movie....get a life!!!

So, I guess you have done your good deed for the day. You have informed all the world that someone might have been having marital problems! Well hoorah for you! I don't know if this couple was or was not. I don't know them. But just what good did it do even if it is true. What about innocent family members that might love this person and might not have known. Or friends who feel for the widow. And have you thought about the children you Jackass?!
Tje only embarrassmemt is you and your unhappy, vengeful, obviously jilted, pathetic person. And who is the more admirable and who the bigger fool? A spouse that stands beside a wrong doing spouse in a time of need and retains memories.(And a classic truck.) Or a person who stays with someone they know is married and ends up with nothing?
TAKE YOUR NEGATIVE REMARKS,(true or not), ELSEWHERE!

To laughing out loud's comment...I had not heard your comment nor do I care if it is true or not. Duane Collum was very sick in the hospital for weeks & just died a couple of weeks ago. His wife was there by his side the entire time while he was in the hospital sick & dying. Most couples have problems from time to time but she was there for him when he was sick & dying and she is the mother of their two kids. I can't believe you would get on here and post such trash that does not matter. I thought it was such an honor that they chose Julie & the kids to be in the movie when they have just gone through so much with his death and her son has so many problems also. You must be jealous of her,$, or something...or just sick in the head & the heart laughing out loud!!

I don't know this family but was excited to read and see who the extras were . Always gotta be a wh@*# or drama queen to kill the joy. Well anyway glad for those who are extras....anybody else? I.didn't even know about this. Super cool.

I thought the 68 ford truck that's in the movie belonged to Duane's oldest son Drew Collum. Didn't his grandfather leave it to him? Why is he not in the movie and why has he not been mentioned anywhere? Isn't it his truck? Did he let Julie and the kids borrow it or something? Did he not want to be in the film? I just don't understand why he hasn't been mentioned anywhere. I thought Duane had 3 kids Drew, Morgan, and Mckinley.

Your right their are lots of people being drawn to this once in a life time event , but to say their all from Cedartown .
I don,t think so .
I passed through and saw a number of tags from other counties and states.
I was looking because I wanted to see where the movie company was from .
What I don,t understand is why people are so surprised that the public would show as much interest in this event as they have ??
You can bet this not the movie makers first rodeo and they know a little about what to expect.
Crowd control and related issues are all apart of process .
No one has been arrested to my knowledge.
So let folks enjoy .The movie will get made .
By the way.
It was nice of your employer to give you the day off so you could amuse your self !!!

The truck was shot in some street scenes.

The kid was a pain in the arse to everyone he was around and an embarrassment to everyone he came in contact with.

Nothing like seeing a kid flip off his mom, cuss her out and threaten to kill her and himself in public.

Problem/Special child or not, he heeds his butt torn up.

His mother was also a pain in the a$$ to everyone..... making demands of the hair and makeup team wanting them to put her above everyone else, as though she were a star. All she did was ride in a car and walk down the street....but she acted as though the movie was about her or something. Get real lady....they only used you for your truck!!!

Seems to me that the only problem that child has, is having her for a mother. Hate to say that, but if my child acted that way in public, well, let's just say my child would never act that way in public. And From what I read, the truck wasn't even hers to begin with. I think it belonged to her husband's oldest son or something. She obviously has issues and is passing them down to her kid. It's just a sad situation. Seriously, who lets their kid flip them off and cuss, much less threaten to kill people. Maybe "laughingoutloud" had a point about the director taking them out of the film. I don't see how they would want to work with people like that. Either way, it's just sad to know that a kid has no direction or proper parenting. She should really reevaluate her life and parenting skills. Not being mean, but if my husband just died, a movie would be the last thing I would think about. I don't think I could stop crying long enough to film. Just saying, that's me personally.

It really is a small world! I read this thread and commented on it BEFORE I showed up to be an extra in the film. I then commented to my wife about a lady who had a child that was acting terrible. Then I discovered later that the kid and mom are the ones who are the topic of this thread!
Yes, the behavior was terrible. But this thread will not stop unruly children or parents who let thier children run over them. And as embarrassing as they were, it is still not as bad as "laughingoutloud" very childish and hurtful remarks posted on an anonymous board! In my first post, as well as this one, I AM NOT defending this woman. I am putting down the actions of "laughingoutloud. "

When the husband dies the widow always seems to only mention "her"kids and convienently leaves out the ones she doesn't like. Its sad that she can't control her kid and she demanded so much out of people like she ran the place, it wouldnt have taken 2 seconds of that and she would have been gone. Why does the fish wrap insist on making front page news out of attention starved fools.

I have never been more embarrassed to live in this community than now.

Do you people making these comments have no compassion? First, who gave you the right to air this family's dirty laundry, assuming any of this is even true?

Second, from what I know about this family, the son has autism. If you are as completely ignorant as you sound, I suggest googling autism and learning a little about how it affects a person. Even more reason to have some commpassion for this mother! I'm sure his behavior is as you described it but instead of judging this family I encourage you to look inside yourself and judge yourself for what you said. I'm more critical of adults who are rude and inconsiderate than I am of young children and parents who may have their hands full.

I am asking that this entire conversation be removed. I do know the family is out of town, most likely trying to regain some sense of a normal life. When you have children, life doesn't stop to allow you to grieve for the loss of a family member. I'm sure her motivation was to create a great memory for her children, just like others who were involved in the movie.

I have to wonder what this mom and her family have done to deserve being attacked! geeesh, she just lost the father of HER children!
