Expect delays on Main Street Oct. 17 as production crews film in Banks

Banks – 
A film production company plans to shoot in Banks on Main Street between Sunset Park and Cedar Canyon Road, causing intermittent delays on Wednesday, October 17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., according to a notice posted by the city of Banks.

During filming, flaggers will control the flow of traffic in the area where cast and crew are working.

The film, tentatively called ‘Lorelei’, is the feature-length debut of writer and director Sabrina Doyle. The story follows an ex-biker named Wayland as he returns to his hometown after 15 years in prison. Once he returns, he rekindles a relationship with his high school sweetheart Dolores, according to Portland casting company Simon Max Hill.

In late September, the production had solicited pictures of vehicles from Banks-area residents in working condition from 1970 – 2000 for use in the film.

According to documents obtained from the city of Banks and correspondence with the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), Main Street may see additional filming dates in October and November. Because Main Street doubles as Highway 47, the production company has had to obtain permission from the city of Banks and ODOT to alter the flow of traffic.

This is a developing story; more information will be posted this week in additional articles.
