LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- A movie about the discovery of a dead body in the peaceful, small town of Morningside, N.J., is being filmed in Lawrenceville and is providing a boost to the Gwinnett County city's economy, reports the Gwinnett Daily Post.

Blue Dusk Productions is filming "The Morningside Monster," which stars Robert Pralgo ("The Vampire Diaries"), Tiffany Shepis ("The Violent Kind"), Amber Chaney ("The Hunger Games") and Nicholas Brendon ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer").

The city's economic director, Lisa Sherman, told the Gwinnett paper that the movie "has been great" for the city. Crews are renting hotel rooms, eating at local restaurants and spending money at the stores, Sherman said.
