“Big Sky River 2” is the highly anticipated sequel to the beloved Hallmark movie “Big Sky River.” Production is set to begin on May 23, 2023, in Vancouver, British Columbia, under the management of Front Street Pictures and Sky Road Productions II Ltd1. This production company has a strong reputation for creating heartfelt and engaging content, often working in collaboration with Hallmark.
The sequel continues the story of Hutch Carmody, a man known for his rugged good looks, vast wealth, and distinguished family name in Parable, Montana. Hutch is often described as a hell-raiser, but the first movie showed that he’s made significant progress in maturing. This involved reconciling with his illegitimate half-brother and inheriting half of the Whisper Creek Ranch, which he initially believed would be entirely his.
In “Big Sky River 2,” Hutch Carmody continues to grapple with the understanding that some things can’t be bought with money. One of these is the affection of Kendra Shepherd, a gentle divorcée who dreams of a devoted husband and a family of her own. Kendra’s quiet mansion serves as a constant reminder of these desires.
The idea of a rough-and-tumble cowboy like Hutch Carmody coming home for a family dinner might seem outlandish, but under the vast Montana sky, even the most incredible dreams have a way of coming true.
The production team includes Harvey Kahn as the producer, J.B. White as the writer, and Peter Benson as the director. Geoff Dodd will serve as the Production Manager, while Yale Kussin will be the Production Coordinator. Paul Etherington will be the First Assistant Director, and Jackie Lind will be the Casting Director.
While information about the exact plot details or the cast is not available as of now, the sequel is sure to captivate audiences just as the original movie did, given the compelling storyline and the experienced production team.
In terms of other productions happening around the same time, “Acting Good” Season 2 will be shot from May 23 to July 8, 2023, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
