This film has a star-studded cast with recognizable talent our state hasn't seen.

Montana has been a hot spot for films and television for several years. Shows like Yellowstone and movies like Montana Story have shown how beautiful and grand our state looks at all different times of the year.

Big Sky Country sees many small or independent films hold productions everywhere, from Polson to Livingston to some of our ghost towns.

The film will star Academy Award-nominated actor Nick Nolte, Academy Award-nominated actor Bill Murray, and Owen Teague.

The movie is set in the wilderness of Montana and deals with a caught serial killer. This film has a ton of potential.

Harris wants to do the story justice and plans on filming most of the production in Montana.

This movie will be the third film Ed Harris will have directed. He has also directed the acclaimed western Appaloosa and the Oscar-nominated Pollock.
