New Geocaching Movie On The Way

 

Categories: GeoMedia Geomovies

 

A new action movie about geocaching, appropriately called Geocachers, is being made by Mike Corkle. Casting has occurred (sorry folks!) and it was shot in the American state of Nebraska back in June. The synopsis handed out at the auditions makes it sound quite exciting:

Geocachers tells the thrilling story of a botched heist that results in a priceless, technological device being lost in the forest of a midwestern town, USA. Two couples camping in the woods run into the team of villains bent on finding their lost loot. When one of the campers is kidnapped, the other members are forced into helping the ruthless thieves, or risk being killed.

… albeit a little farfetched. But then that’s the point sometimes, isn’t it?

Christos Vassilopous, a little known (at least internationally) Greek actor is set to play the head bad guy. He was interviewed by the Greek Hollywood Reporter website which advised:

Christos tells us about the role he will be playing. “I will portray a bad guy. We will be a group of four villains, and I will be the right-hand man of the boss that will take care of most of the sketchy business. There are some hidden boxes hidden throughout the forest containing treasure that the two couples are trying to discover. We are there to make sure that they don’t find them. The character is a bad guy but also has a more humane side. I am gonna be killing people but decided to have my character sucking a lollypop to show a softer side.

<sarcasm>A lollipop-sucking villain … very scary. </sarcasm>

I’ve yet to watch the last significant geocaching movie, Splinterheads, but a number of cachers who have seen it expressed some disappointment. I’m not sure whether that was due to a lack of geocaching footage or if the movie just bombed. For those that haven’t seen it, the film’s trailer and excellent Splinterheads geocaching intro are below.

    I enjoyed Splinterheads. It’s not a geocaching film per se – but does promote it in a positive light.
