• Movie filming in Everett benefiting local economy

    EVERETT, Wash. (AP) (AP)ong> - Aspiring film stars in Everett may have their chance at fame this next week as the crew working on a new movie seeks locals to fill out the scenes.

    The Daily Herald (http://is.gd/udcYk1 ) reports the action flick "Seven Minutes" is filming around downtown Everett over the coming week and around Snohomish County over the next month.

    Locals are invited to watch and to get in the action as extras. The movie's plot is about a heist gone wrong. City Manager Carol Thomas says the movie is bringing an economic windfall to Everett, by filling hotel rooms,

    dining out, buying supplies, and leasing office and warehouse space.  The city is even profiting from crime scenes. Thomas says the film crew is leasing police vehicles from the city and paying off-duty officers to drive

    them. Information from: The Daily Herald, http://www.heraldnet.com
