Iron Range possible location for movie filming
Virginia, Minn. (AP) — Film crews could once again be on the Iron Range.
The Upper Minnesota Film Office is working to convince a production company to film the movie "The Convincer" in northeastern Minnesota.
The Minnesota-based company Werc Werk Works is considering four locations in the state, including Duluth and the Iron Range for the movie which centers on Midwestern con-artists and insurance agents.
Movie producers were last on the Iron Range for the 2004 movie "North Country" starring Woody Harrelson and Charlize Theron. Restaurant and bar owner Tom Martinich says the movie packed hotels and other establishments during filming.
A decision is expected by the end of the year.
