Movie company hopes to use Lorraine Motel location shoot for film on Martin Luther King's final days

The Nashville Business Journal reports Universal Pictures is attempting to do part of the filming for its new movie on the final days of Martin Luther King at the remnants of the Lorraine Motel, where Dr. King was assassinated on April 4, 1068:

The balcony where King was shot has been preserved and is part of the National Civil Rights Museum, which walks visitors through the struggle for civil rights before showing them the room where King stayed at the Lorraine Motel and the spot where he was assassinated.

Universal is scouting other locations in Memphis, as well.
