Film Director Hasn’t Repaid Loan To Washington Co.

 

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — The director of a Civil War movie filmed in the Maryland area still hasn’t repaid most of $300,000 he borrowed from Washington County in 2002.

 

The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown reports that director Ron Maxwell owes about $263,000 in principal and interest on the loan, which he took out after making the film “Gods and Generals.” The loan agreement gave Maxwell until 2005 to start working on another Civil War film based on Jeff Shaara’s book “The Last Full Measure” and to produce at least half of it in Washington County.

 

Otherwise, Maxwell would have to repay the money and interest by 2010.

 

Assistant County Attorney Andrew Wilkinson says the county is in discussions with Maxwell about the loan. The newspaper was unable to reach Maxwell for comment.
