Hollywood in Cape Girardeau

Producers of "Killshot" have confirmed that Diane Lane and other stars and crew will be in Cape Girardeau, Mo., later this year or in early 2006 to shoot scenes for the movie.

Based on the 1989 novel by Elmore Leonard, Killshot will tell the story of a married couple who find themselves in Cape Girardeau while on the run from a pair of hitmen.

Scenes for the film will be shot in late December or early January, said Jerry Jones, executive director of the Missouri Film Commission. Filming starts in Toronto on Oct. 11. There will be about three days of shooting in Cape Girardeau, which is about 175 miles north of Memphis.

Killshot, directed by John "Shakespeare in Love" Madden, also will star Mickey Rourke and Justin Timberlake. It is expected to be released next year.
