How is the cast of The Vampire Diaries spending their summer vacation? By making movies! Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert) shot Let’s Be Cops in Atlanta, Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) is in London making The Anomaly, and Zach Roerig (Matt Donovan) has a role in Field of Lost Shoes.

In an uncharacteristic flood of tweets — three’s a lot considering how little the guy normally tweets — Zach posted a few behind-the-scenes photos from the set of the film.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Field of Lost Shoes is a Civil War drama starring David Arquette, Lauren Holly, and Tom Skerritt. You know what that means: Zach in a uniform!

The film, which is shooting in Virginia, follows a group of cadets at Virginia Military Institute. When the Union Army marches into Shenandoah Valley, the students try to save their school and homes. It’s definitely unusual to see a Civil War movie from the perspective of the Confederates. Director Sean McNamara told The Roanoke Times, “What intrigues me is the families having their sons go off to war. Doesn’t matter what side you’re on, you’re still going out to fight for what you believe in.”

Congrats to Zach on the new movie!
