HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - Lights, camera, action!  Huntsville is yet again playing the part for another potential Hollywood hit.

Filming for a movie called "Space Warriors" continues at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center.

The film is set for release sometime next year, and centers around a teenage boy who gets a chance to fulfill his dream of going to Space Camp.

Most of the cast has been in town filming for the last few weeks.  Director Sean McNamara says "Space Warriors" is a movie that will inspire.  "Our dream is to get kids interested in going to space. That's what Space Camp is all about," said McNamara. "There are people who are basketball stars, football stars, sports stars all over, but how many people really want to get into math and science and go to space, and that's what this film is all about."

The "Space Warriors" cast includes Danny Glover, Josh Lucas, Thomas Horn, Dermot Mulroney, Mira Sorvino and Booboo Stewart, who has been in the Twilight movies.

We're told filming will continue through the third week of August.
