Merry Kiss Cam: Everything We Know About The Movie Shot In Duluth
Halloween is over which means it is holiday season now, with Thanksgiving and Christmas right around the corner. That also means, in my world, it is time for those amazing holiday romantic comedies.
You probably know by now that one of those very movies filmed in Duluth earlier this year. The movie filmed in a bunch of different locations across the area, with several scenes being filmed in downtown Duluth.
It was an exciting time for Duluthians, as there were celebrities everywhere! In fact, television star Katie Lowes is in the film and even went shopping during her downtime, stopping by Duluth Candy Co. to buy some treats for the cast and crew.
The movie shot in late spring and early summer, wrapping production in June. Throughout the filming of the movie, they held several casting calls for extras so there are many local actors and Duluthians in the film, which is pretty cool!
Now, as the film gets closer to airing, we have a little more insight into exactly what we can expect from the film, called Merry Kiss Cam! We got a little more insight from those involved with the movie, who shared more detail on Thursday (November 3rd).
