Wednesday, May 8, 2013, between 9am and 1pm
"All traffic on Highway 261 will be diverted in Old Town. If your traveling south bound on Highway 261, you will be detoured onto Railroad ave and traveling on 2nd street until you get back to Highway 261. If you’re traveling northbound, you will be detoured onto 2nd ave west to 2nd street until you get back on Highway 261 again near the railroad tracks in Old Town. We will have Officers on the scene to direct you where you need to go during these hours. The reason for the closure is because we are assisting a production company that is filming a movie in Old Town Helena".
This is for the movie whose "working title" is called Fresh Water. It will include names like Zoe Bell, Dr. Quinn's Joe Lando. The plot is "A new take on the classic story of a group of twenty-something kids' weekend of terror at the lake house. After fighting to stay alive two young people narrowly escape the secluded lake house and killer that lurks in the lake".
