Film Cincinnati announced principal photography on the movie, which tells the story of a 17-year-old battling mental illness and anxiety, will shoot throughout Greater Cincinnati for the next two months.
"We are so excited to have 'Turtles All the Way Down' film here in Cincinnati," said Kristen Schlotman, executive director of Film Cincinnati.
