The Associated Press is reporting that Billy Bob Thornton is saying that he’d like to shoot Peace Like a River, a feature planned for this fall, in Minnesota. Thornton says that he believes that authentic locations make a big difference. Thornton cites Sam Raimi’s A Simple Plan as an example of a film that benefited from Minnesota locations. He also says that it’s one of his favorite roles. A version of the article ran in the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
Discussion board chatter on the IMDb suggests that Calgary, Alberta will get the shoot.
