Filming Begins In Jackson Hole

movie camera

Filming could begin here sometime this week on a portion of “Django Unchained” directed by Quentin Tarantino.  Locations are being kept closely-guarded secrets, but some may be within Grand Teton National Park.  Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says a permit was issued to the production company a week ago.  Skaggs says such permits first take into consideration protection of the natural resources in the area of the shoot, and then seek to protect the ability of the public to enjoy the park in spite of the filming activities.  Skaggs says a permit has a certain amount of flexibility so that if a company discovers additional sites that might be suitable, it can be amended to allow their inclusion.  Skaggs adds that she is optimistic that what the film crew experiences here can lead to future movie opportunities. Skaggs says she thinks the surroundings will impress the producers and possibly lead to future use of the area.  Most of the setting of “Django Unchained” is in the New Orleans area, but the company came to Jackson Hole to take advantage of the snow called for in some of the scenes. There is no word on which of the actors staring in the film will be traveling to Jackson for those scenes.
