They’re pumping-up production of “Corner Gas: The Movie.”
Shooting of the new film based on the hit TV show began this weekend in Saskatchewan.
All eight original stars are being reunited – including Brent Butt, Eric Peterson and Nancy Robertson.
The story picks up five years after the show left off – with the gang from Dog River rallying to save the town from a devious corporate giant.
“Corner Gas: The Movie” is set to premiere in November at theatres across Canada – before airing on TV.
A Kickstarter campaign promoting fan engagement ended June 18th and raised almost $286,000 – nearly three times what it hoped to bring in.
