World premiere of In Gramps’ Shoes set Nov. 2

CROSSVILLE — Hollywood is coming to Crossville Nov. 2 when the world premiere of “In Gramps’ Shoes,” a new faith-based film, is held at the Rocky Top 10 Cinema in Crossville. Showings will be held at 4, 7 and 9:30 p.m. Cast and crew will be available between from 6 to 9:30 p.m. to meet audience members.

"In Gramps’ Shoes" was written and produced by Cumberland County resident Donald James Parker and tells the story of 65-year-old Ty who comes back into the lives of his daughter and grandchildren when they experience financial difficulty. Ty must deal with a snarky teenage grandson, a distant daughter and her abusive ex-husband. The film was co-produced and directed by Chip Rossetti of Rossetti Productions of Evansville, IN.

Actors featured in the film include: Andrew Wilson Williams (“Season of Miracles,” “We Are Marshall”); Francine Locke (“Stand Your Ground,” “Risky Business”) and Jeff Rose (“It’s Supernatural,” “Drop Dead Diva”). The cast and crew also included residents of Crossville and the Cumberland Plateau.

Playing Scott Douglas in the movie "In Gramps' Shoes" was totally against type for 16-year-old Andrew Wilson Williams of Loxley, AL. The character of Scott smokes, is disrespectful and gets involved with nefarious dealings. Williams, a sophomore at Robertsdale High School, is an honors student who tries to keep his nose clean and has a strong faith foundation. Williams has been acting professionally since age 4 and did his first feature film at age 8 as Matthew McConaughey's  son in We Are Marshall. Since then, he has had three lead roles including Zach Ross ("Season of Miracles,") Jay ("Grim Reapers") and Scott Douglas ("In Gramps' Shoes.") He is also featured in the movies "Secrets in the Fall," "Demon Lake," and "Eye of the Hurricane." Acting is a family affair for Williams. His brother, Ryan Patrick Williams, plays Duke Snyder in the movie "In Gramps' Shoes" and his mother, Sherri Killam-Williams, plays the grocer.

Several scenes, including one at Stone Memorial High School and another at a 5K race, were filmed using hundreds of area residents who came out to be part of the movie.

Tickets to the premiere of “In Gramps’ Shoes,” are $7 each and may be purchased online at or at the movie box office. Rocky Top 10 Cinemas is at 1251 Interstate Drive, Crossville.
