According to crew members and various entertainment Web sites - including the Hollywood Reporter - the plot centers on a down-on-his-luck travel agent living in Alaska, played by Robin Williams. Williams' wife, played by Holly Hunter, suffers from Tourette's syndrome, and Williams' character is seeking money to take her to a warmer climate.
Williams finds a frozen corpse and pretends it is his long-lost brother (Woody Harrelson) to cash an insurance policy, but his plans go south thanks to a claims adjuster (Giovanni Ribisi) and two hitmen.
Skagway-based filming was set to end this week. Additional scenes will be shot in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, and Winnipeg, Manitoba through June.
The movie "Never Cry Wolf" was shot in Skagway in 1980-81, according to The Skagway News. A made-for-TV movie and several historical documentaries were based in the town in more recent years.
