The Green Mile today. Recently I worked on a project of seeking out and photographing the film locations from the Green Mile movie. I found that most of the exterior shots were filmed in various places in Tennessee.
In this collage I have included some of those locations. Enjoy!
1.The first is the bridge that's seen in the background of the scene where John is apprehended, holding the dead Dedrick twins next to the river.
2. Second is exterior of "Cold Mountain Prison" (Old "Walls" in Nashville) where we are introduced to the main cast.
3.Third is the house where Paul (Tom Hanks) goes to speak with the attorney Burt Hammersmith (Gary Sinise). They sit on this porch and discuss the Coffey case.
4.Forth is the actual building used as E Block (the Mile). A facade was built around this building to give it the look of a early prison death house. Up until a few years ago, it was still intact and still looked just like e block in the film. Over time, it crumbled and had to be discarded.
5. Fifth is Warden Hal Moores' (James Cromwell) house in the film. This is where Paul and the guys took John to heal Mrs. Moores.
6. Lastly, we have the graveyard (Round hill cemetery) where elderly Paul attended his friend's funeral in the final act of the movie.
The other picture is from a random shot I set up...and yes that's a real mouse, lol.
