With production moving along on 1923, several street closures will be in effect today in Uptown Butte.  Closures will start early this morning but should be wrapped up by late evening, however officials state that times are not exact and may fluctuate due to weather and other factors.


The areas affected are in and around the Butte-Silver Bow Courthouse area with two blocks of Granite Street closed from Montana east to Main Street.  Alaska Street in front of the Sheriff's Department will also be off limits as will be Quartz Street from Main Street west to Montana.

1923 is produced by Taylor Sheridan and is a "Yellowstone" prequel series following the immense success of "1883", another prequel series that followed the Dutton clan on their way from Tennessee, through Texas and eventually on to Montana.  1883 featured stellar performances from such heavyweights as Sam Elliott, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.  The cast of 1923 may be even stronger with Academy Award winner Helen Mirren in the leading lady role and the legendary Harrison Ford as the leading man.  Details and their place in the Dutton family hierarchy are purely speculation at this point, but the series' teaser trailer provides a little bit of insight.

The production of "1923" has been evident in Uptown Butte as earlier this summer other blocks of the Uptown were closed for filming on what is truly a major Hollywood project.  Butte's present-day Broadway street was literally transformed into Sheridan's vision of 1923-era Bozeman as the Dutton clan presumably deals with prohibition and the days leading up to the Great Depression.  Presumably.  Which is what makes us all the more eager for 1923's premiere this December on Paramount Plus.
