Mickey Rourke will dominate Mo.
CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) _ Residents of this Mississippi River city are getting a chance to appear in a movie starring Diane Lane, Johnny Knoxville and Mickey Rourke. A four-day shooting schedule will begin Jan. 9 in downtown Cape Girardeau for the movie "Killshot," based on a novel by Elmore Leonard. It's about a couple who enter the federal witness protection program and are sent to Cape Girardeau. About 100 to 150 residents will be hired as extras for scenes of historic downtown streets and spots along the Mississippi River. Most of the movie was filmed in Toronto, but producers wanted location shots of Cape Girardeau to capture the atmosphere of the 1989 novel. A cast and crew of about 70 people will be in town Jan. 8 for the filming.
