RENO, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- A new movie is set to be filmed in the Reno-Tahoe area this fall. The $2 million film is called "The Lake." It is about freshwater sharks in Lake Tahoe and will feature action star Dolph Lundgren.

President and CEO of the Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority Chris Baum said the movie will film in Reno-Tahoe for about six weeks, and it will bring dozens of jobs for locals in the acting field. He also said the announcement is very exciting for our area, because Reno-Tahoe will not just be a backdrop for the action film, but will be part of the story. "It also is a calling card for our region because we look great on film and when these films get out there and they are shown worldwide, people who have never been here before say wow where did they shoot that thing, and they watch the credits and think maybe I need to go there for my next vacation."

Baum also said the RSCVA is working to get television shows to our region. He said they recently met with producers from a major cable television series. A pilot episode will soon be filmed in Reno, and if it's picked up, Baum said the show will have a $30 million economic impact on our region.

Filming begins on the 21st of January and ends in mid to late February. And yes, as what I read here casting directors are looking for actors, models and other talents to audition for various speaking roles in this new feature film. I'm sure this will bring a lot of happiness for locals! Good luck guys! I'm looking forward for this movie!

I didnt even know he was still alive, figured he over did the steroid thing all those years past and he just faded off and died. Not exactly a great actor but then, I don't know what to think about the fresh water shark issue at Lake Tahoe.

Fresh water sharks? I anticipate this film will be nominated for a Razzie Award! At least Reno 911 was funny!
