Bentonville in "beta stages" of film production, but getting the ball rolling

Andrew Williams slates a shot in the production of Future Robotics Engineering Design Innovation or FREDI, for short, on the Bentonville Square. Thanks to the growth of the area, as well as amenities and events, Bentonville increasingly attracts interest of filmmakers

A cloudless Sunday sky offered no relief to the production crew shuffling two cameras and three actors through traffic and around the Bentonville square earlier this month. After their hour-long lunch break, everyone was back to work creating FREDI, a family-friendly action-adventure slated to hit theaters in the summer of 2018.
