Quiet on the set!
Sequel to ‘Frozen stupid’ filmed in Houghton Lake
HOUGHTON LAKE – Frozen Stupid II – Open Waters finished up filming at Houghton Lake Sept. 19.
The original movie, Frozen Stupid, also filmed on Houghton Lake, starred Joey Albright as Tony Norgard, and Ernest Borgnine as his dad, Frank. That movie followed Tony as he fibbed his way out of a family celebration to go ice fishing.
Frozen Stupid II brought back most of the original cast as once again Tony bungles his life, trying to raise enough money to pay off a DNR fee after pulling his truck out of the waters of the lake. Winning the big fishing contest being held that weekend seems to be the perfect solution – but is it?
Professional Walleye fisherman Mark Martin and his staff joined the filming, adding to the authenticity of the fishing contest.
Does Tony go on to win the fishing contest and pay his fines without his wife hearing about it?
You will have to wait and watch the movie once it is finished to find out! According to writer, director, and producer Rich Brauer, the film should be out in early 2020. This is Brauer’s 9th feature film.
