Filming of Natural Disaster Adventure Movie Wraps in Billings (VIDEO)
For the past couple of weeks there have been producers, writers, actors, and crew in Montana for the filming of a "natural disaster adventure film" that has been titled Supercell, according to Deadline.com.
"That's a wrap on Montana" was posted on the @supercellthemovie Instagram, as filming was completed outside of Billings on Thursday night (5/20), and now heads to Thomasville, Georgia. Movie crews also commented on their social media pages about snowfall during their last night of filming in Montana, posting "Brody Snow Tours."
The movie Supercell stars Alec Baldwin, Anne Heche, and Skeet Ulrich, according to Deadline, and tells the story of "William, a good-hearted teenager who always lived in hope of following in his father’s footsteps, the legendary storm chaser Bill Brody, killed by a massive super tornado."
Alec Baldwin plays the "greedy and reckless" Zane Rogers in the film according to Deadline, and uses the main character William to "lead a group of unsuspecting adventurers deep into the eye of the most dangerous supercell ever seen."
In a photo shared below by director and co-writer of Supercell Jamie Winterstern, you see Baldwin "bringing Zane Rogers to life."
Several areas around Yellowstone County were used in the filming, along with scenes at the Western Motel in Hardin.
The writer and director of Supercell Jamie Winterstern shared several photos on social media of their crew filming scenes around Billings, including one below from Day 3 of filming in Montana, showing the Brody Storm Tours van after a storm of "gorilla hail."
Large wind fans were brought onto the set of the movie Supercell to recreate strong storm winds...
But during filming, Montana showed up with its own special effects, providing 50 mph gusts. The Director of Development and Production KC Brandenstein said, "Felt like I was living inside of a movie."
Alec Baldwin took a moment away from the movie set to enjoy an authentic Montana sunset.
