Russian Sci-Fi Flick is Shooting in Guthrie, Oklahoma
on January 20, 2013
The Russian 3D sci-fi thriller Higher Mission has moved production to the unlikely location of Guthrie, Oklahoma. Directed by Vladimir Uglichin, the film is about an American senator who has a dream about corruption among the Russian parliament and must warn the leaders in Moscow that if they don't stop taking bribes, they'll be turned into rodents. On location in the U.S, Higher Mission's predominately Russian cast and crew are joined by Starship Troopers star Casper Van Dien and local producer Grey Fredricksen, who worked on The Outsiders, The Godfather, and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Shooting is taking place at Guthrie's Scottish Rite Temple, which director Uglichin says looks very much like something you'd see in Russia.
