AJ: We’re Ready for Our Closeup

Film crew working in and around the city on new sci-fi feature

An independent feature film The Unhealer will include some familiar scenery to Apache Junction denizens. Apache Junction High School and the Bluebird Mine have hosted the crew in the past weeks, and there have been just a few murmurs about the heat. The film explores teen bullying and abuse of power with supernatural twists.

Is there a better location than our own legendary Superstition Mountain? “We scouted Scottsdale and Chandler, but Apache Junction was most accommodating,” said unit publicist Tom Tanno.

The film combines the genres of  drama, science fiction and horror, featuring a cast of young Hollywood and Arizona actors led by a trio of veteran film and television stars.
