Hollywood is coming to the Kibbie Dome on Saturday.

Part of the family-friendly wrestling drama, “The Last Champions” will be filmed in the Kibbie Dome. The movie is directed by Glenn Withrow and stars Cole Hauser and Hallie Todd. It should be released in theaters by 2017.

The filming will start following Saturday’s 7 p.m. basketball game between the Vandals and Montana State. Fans are encouraged to stay after the game and watch the filming and be spectators in some of the movie’s wrestling scenes. Tickets to the game cost $7 for children, $11 for seniors and $13 for adults.

Comedian Jon Huck will entertain the crowd during setup.

More filming will take place throughout the University of Idaho’s campus and the Palouse. Anyone interested in being and extra can sign up at pacificnorthwestcasting.com.
