Richard Dutcher's 'The Prophet' Begins First Day of Filming

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- On January 19, Zion Films transformed Ogden's Fort Buenaventura State Park into the 19th century prairies between Missouri and Illinois as director Richard Dutcher began preliminary shooting for his new film 'The Prophet--The Story of Joseph Smith Jr.'

Saturday's shoot was a big affair, with horse-drawn wagons and hundreds of extras in period costumes. Shooting was scheduled to include a scene of Mormon settlers crossing a raging winter river during their trek from Missouri to Nauvoo, Illinois. Dutcher needed to shoot winter scenes while snow was still on the ground. Serious filming will begin in early April at locations in Canada and New York. Casting for the film is still underway.

'The Prophet' is Dutcher's first big-budget film after the box office and critical success of his two low-budget independent films 'God's Army' and 'Brigham City.' Filmmakers anticipate the theater release of the film in 2003.
