BEMIDJI (AP) -- Two film industry insiders toured the old and the new Bemidji High School as a possible filming location.
Mark Cartier, a producer at North of Two Pictures in Burbank, Calif., and Worm Miller, a screen writer and director, are scouting locations for their film "Janitors Don't Die," a comedy that Miller described as a live-action "Simpsons" Halloween special.
Miller wrote the script and will direct the film.
Cartier grew up in East Grand Forks and Miller grew up in Bloomington. They both attended the University of Minnesota.
They plan to be in Minnesota looking at various buildings and communities until Monday. They already visited Roseau and Warroad.
Miller said he was impressed by what Roseau had to offer, but Warroad's facilities are simply too small to host a film production.
After their tour in Bemidji, they were headed to Walker to scan Walker-Hackensack-Akeley's facilities.
