"Killshot" Filming Set to Begin

Cape Girardeau, MO - Producers begin filming the Cape Girardeau scenes for the major motion picture “Killshot” next Monday.

Cape Girardeau city officials tell Heartland News a producer of “Killshot” and several members of the staff are in town right now. Much more of the crew should arrive on Friday.

In the meantime locals who will be closest to the filming are getting ready.

There are plans for part of the movie crew to set up shop in the parking lot in front of Hutson’s Fine Furniture.

“I heard there will be there equipment trailers and whatever they use will be parked in the Parking lot across the street,” said Dave Hutson.

When filming starts the Cape Girardeau Police Department expects downtown streets to be filled with people who want to get close to the action. So several police officers, like Sgt. Rick Schmidt will be standing guard. Schmidt says he is to report to the Courthouse steps Monday morning at 6:00 a.m. for instructions.

“Oh, I’m sure it will be exciting,” said Sgt. Schmidt. “I mean I’ve been here for a long time and I don’t ever remember a movie being filmed in Cape Girardeau.”

Some Southeast Missouri State Video Production Students will get to ad work on “Killshot” to their resumes.

On Friday, about twenty lucky Production Assistants find out more about their jobs.

Ryan Maurer is one of those assistants. Maurer says the job includes learning what’s referred to as ‘set etiquette.’

“Mainly it’s being polite and showing the crew that Cape is a good place to make a movie,” said Maurer. “Also, staying away from the talent and making them feel as comfortable as possible.

Patty Lasher will also serve as a Production Assistant. “I’m just so excited,” Lasher said. “Just the fact that I’m going to work on a movie set with the stars.”

If movie producers choose you as an extra for “Killshot” please call the station and let us know.
