‘Nebraska’ Film Crew In Elgin Today Shooting Movie

Hollywood came to Elgin Tuesday morning as film crews were busy shooting a scene for the Alexander Payne film ‘Nebraska.’
Trucks and equipment arrived in Elgin Monday night, filling up available space around St. Boniface Catholic Church.
By early Tuesday morning, crews and equipment were being set up at West Cedar Valley/St. Boniface Cemetery to film a scene which will be included in the movie.
Many of movie scenes are being shot in northeast Nebraska, with special emphasis on Plainview and Stanton. Those towns will make up the movie’s fictional town of Hawthorne.
The black-and-white film stars Bruce Dern as a cantankerous father who wants his estranged son, played by Will Forte, to take him from Montana to Lincoln to claim a sweepstakes prize. Bob Odenkiirk plays Dern’s older son, and Stacy Keach will appear as an old colleague of Dern’s character.
