If you’re into thriller movies (who isn’t?), then Inheritance (2020) is for you. In this article, we’re going to look at the filming locations of a movie that involves million-dollar inheritance, truths that should rather stay buried, sudden deaths, and a super cool and sharp-witted district attorney, played by Lily Collins. Excited? Curious? If yes, then keep reading to know where was Inheritance filmed. 

You will like Inheritance if you’re a fan of Lily Collins. The first film that I saw of the actress was To The Bone, and oh boy, I was blown away by her phenomenal acting skills! So, if it’s safe to expect something similar from this movie as well. Oh, and before we go any further, let me ask you to not expect spine-chilling plot twists, serial killers, homicides, etc. from Inheritance. Because this movie, despite belonging to the thriller genre, isn’t about that cliche stuff. 

Anyways, Inheritance was filmed entirely in Alabama, USA. To be more specific, the movie was shot in Birmingham and Mobile, located in Alabama. The production commenced the filming of Inheritance in February 2019 and wrapped it up by April 2019. However, the release date of the movie was postponed quite a few times because of the pandemic. 

There’s no particular reason why the production unit decided to film the movie in Alabama. Despite that, I know you’d want to know more about this filming location. Right? So, keep scrolling, because I’ll be describing each of the locations in detail!

The Plot Of Inheritance | What Is Inheritance About?

The plot of Inheritance revolves around the Monroe family. Archer Monroe is a business tycoon and the controlling patriarch of the family.  He and his wife Catherine have two children who are at equally successful positions in their careers. Although, Archer neither approves of Lauren’s choice of profession (district attorney) or husband.

After Archer dies, Catherine and Harold, the Monroe family’s attorney, try to convince Lauren that Archer loved both his children equally. But, the unequal distribution of wealth– Lauren getting 1/20th portion of what her brother got makes it clear who Archer loved more. 

However, Archer left something else for Lauren– a manila envelope and a video message. After the funeral was over, Harold took Lauren aside and made her listen to the message. Through it, Archer informs her about an underground bunker in a remote part of the estate. 

When Lauren goes there, she finds a disheveled man, tied with chains and a neck harness in the corner of the bunker. Slowly, Lauren starts questioning him. But, some secrets should rather stay buried, you know? She discovers that her father used his connections to help his children reach powerful positions and that he had a son from his mistress. 

And the man imprisoned in the bunker for over 30 years was Archer’s business partner. The two of them had accidentally killed a pedestrian. To keep the secret buried, Archer kept the man a prisoner. But now, Lauren has decided to set him free. What do you think will happen to the Monroe family now?
