ADAM Beach will be arriving in Winnipeg this week to work on a new film for writer-director Jeremy Torrie, who produced the 2003 telefilm Cowboys and Indians: The J.J. Harper Story in which Beach played Harper.
In Torrie's film Path of Souls, Beach plays a "young Einstein" who communicates from beyond the grave with his wife, compelling her on a cross-continent journey to some of the spiritual centres of First Nations people.
"Its a really good script, (examining) Anishnabe teaching and how it fares with scientific teaching," says Beach who will also be credited as an executive producer. "The Anishnabe had a name for the Milky Way before people were looking through telescopes. (This film will) let people know that we have our oral history and teachings that mean something to us."
Torrie, who places the film's current budget at $1.1 million, says the film will co-star Corey Sevier and Lorne Cardinal. It will have a five-week shooting schedule. Beach will be in Winnipeg until Aug. 21.
The movie will be shot with state of the art Epic 5K cameras (with five times the resolution of HD). Torrie says production will visit sacred sites across North America, including Devil's Tower in Wyo., Sedona, Ariz., the Great Gallery at Horseshoe Canyon, Utah, Chaco Canyon, N.M., as well as Bannock Point in Manitoba,.
In a way, Randall King was born into the entertainment beat.
