The SyFy Channel Movie “Weather Wars,” set for release this July is being filmed here in Lafayette, LA. Film crews are canvassed up and down Jefferson St. from the Underpass to the Lafayette Science Museum this afternoon.

This Science Fiction movie stars Stacy Keach, Jason London, Erin Cahill and Wes Brown. The plot involves a series of freak weather occurrences around Washington D.C. that reunites two estranged brothers who are the sons of a once prestigious climate scientist.

One of the brothers suspects their father is behind the weather disturbances and upon further investigation, they discover that all of their father's enemies are dead - victims of freak weather accidents.

Soon the brother’s suspicions are confirmed as their father hijacks radio and TV transmissions to relay the message that unless a certain Senator whom canceled his Defense Department contracts is handed over, the city of Washington D.C will suffer the consequences.

As the brothers race to form a plan that can defeat their father, he lets loose a variety of diabolical weather weapons on the Smithsonian, Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials, and National Mall!  KATC TV3 Live Trucks and Reporters will be featured in the film.
