According to Minnesota Film and TV, a non-profit film commission that advances Minnesota’s economy by enticing film and TV productions to film in Minnesota, the cast and crew were at Keenan's Bar and Grill "620 Club" on West 7th Street in St. Paul doing some filming on Monday.

Filming is expected to take about 4 weeks at locations in and around St. Paul, once the movie is finished Rumreich says that it will be submitted to a variety of film festivals during the summer of 2024 in hopes of finding a distributor or investors interested in buying the production rights.

Rumreich told the Country Messenger, "I’m over the top excited. I think this is going to turn out to be a pretty big hit. That’s certainly our hope. It’s kind of like a dream that’s in the process of coming true. I’m pretty darn happy with it."
