Producer: ‘Hunter Killer’ not dead, just postponed –

The producer of a major motion picture that was supposed to film in Whittier this spring said the movie project isn’t dead it’s just been postponed.

Scott Lumpkin is executive producer for the film “Hunter Killer,” a U.S.-Russian spy thriller featuring submarines. Lumpkin confirmed the movie will be shooting heavily outside the state, but he said Alaskan scenes will still be shot in Whittier starting in September. Late last year, producers had said the big-budget film would primarily be shot in the little Southcentral town.

Lumpkin said the change was made for several reasons. He said the script is being rewritten, which has pushed the timetable back by several weeks. That was an issue, he said, because the shooting schedule now runs into the summer tourism season. Cruise ships are scheduled to dock in Whittier May 1 and the production company had hoped to use the cruise ship terminal as their base camp.

When asked if the Alaska film tax credits played a part in the decision, Lumpkin said no. He said to his knowledge, the production was still in line to get tax credits, provided they made the necessary expenditures in Alaska.

When asked how big those expenditures might be, Lumpkin said he couldn’t say. He said the production has already spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in the state and has had Alaskans on the payroll since mid-January. He added that people who came out for casting calls will still be needed in the fall. He said the latest information can be found on the SprocketHeads website.

Becozy fell under Gerry’s spell when she watched Phantom of The Opera for the first time in May 2005, while recovering from knee surgery. She was smitten with the Phantom from the moment his face appeared in the mirror, falling in love during the Music of the Night. After searching the internet for information about the actor able to cast such a spell, she discovered Gerard Butler. Her life, and that of her family, hasn’t been the same since. With Gerry as a common bond, becozy has an expanding world of cyber and real friends.  Her family has greeted her new found ‘hobby’ with enthusiasm and her new friends with a warm welcome. Happily, her husband and two (now adult) children share her admiration of Gerry. Her family knows and understands all Gerry references in their correct context. Mention 3AM, camels, or yellow towels, for example and you’ll get a knowing nod! Over ten years later, as much time as possible each day is spent in the care and nurturing of her Addiction. It is a delicate balancing act to fulfill her duties as wife and mom and her duties as a GAL, but one she is determined to master.
