HELENA (AP) — A new film based on a James Welch novel is being shot in Chinook and Havre.
Gov. Brian Schweitzer visited the set last week and says the film called "Winter in the Blood" is a remarkable Montana story.
Missoula-born directors Alex and Andrew Smith developed the screenplay based on Welch's coming of age story about Native American life in Montana, The pair previously filmed the Montana-based movie "The Slaughter Rule."
The film stars Montana native Chaske Spencer from the Twilight series of movies, David Morse and others.
The Montana Film Office says the movie is taking advantage of incentives offered to movie production in the state.
