MENA (KTHV)- Filming of a major motion picture could bring Hollywood to western Arkansas. The star studded cast would include Tom Cruise.

The Hollywood spotlight may soon shine down on Mena, Arkansas, according to Mena Mayor, George McKee.

“I think it would be a positive. There’s a story there. I see it as nothing but a positive for Mena.”

The film titled Mena is a fact-based tale about Barry Seal, a pilot in the 1980s who was a gun runner, and drug trafficker working for the CIA and drug cartels.

The operation was run out of the Mena Airport.
