ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- The stars are out in Seward.
A Hollywood production crew is set to film a movie in the Kenai Peninsula town, called "Christmas with a capital C."
Producers set the film in Seward because of its small-town feel, but the filmmakers say Alaska's film tax credit also gave them incentive to shoot it there.
The brother of actor Alec Baldwin, Daniel Baldwin, stars as the antagonist who doesn't believe in the spirit of Christmas.
The film centers around a legal dispute about keeping the Christmas nativity out of government buildings.
But Baldwin says like any good Christmas story, the grinch has a change of heart.
"It's about coming home to God too. So I think the Christmas spirit has a tendency to make us reflect about our beliefs because of what we are celebrating," Baldwin said.
The cast is largely made up of talent from Alaska, and Seward High School students will be extras in the movie.
