Filming on ‘Killer’ under way in Oklahoma

Filming in Guthrie, Okla., for the new film The Killer Inside Me is under way and actress Jessica Alba is due in the state within weeks, a producer says.

Producer Andrew Eaton said the first week of filming on the thriller in Guthrie concluded Saturday and within the next two weeks, Alba should join the cast to continue shooting the $10 million production, The Oklahoman (Oklahoma City) reported Sunday.

Eaton's fellow producer, Susan Kirr, said the cast and crew of the independent film was happen to return to Guthrie after filming in New Mexico.

Our first four days of principal photography in New Mexico went well, but we are really glad to be back 'home' in Guthrie, Kirr said. The town and the people here have been so welcoming to us.

The film, which stars actor Casey Affleck and actress Kate Hudson, is based on author Jim Thompson's 1952 paperback crime novel.

The Oklahoman said in addition to filming in Guthrie, the movie production will shoot in Oklahoma City, Cordell, Enid and Tulsa.
