Scenes for the movie, which stars Colin Hanks -- son of actor Tom Hanks -- and Ann-Margret, have been shot in about 30 sites in the Omaha-Council Bluffs area.

A section of 40th Street between Farnam and Dewey streets was closed and fake snow was laid out to facilitate Thursday's shoot.
Lucky is a dark comedy in which a wannabe serial killer -- Hanks' character -- wins the lottery and then pursues his high school sweetheart.
The Council Bluffs Daily Nonpariel newspaper -- which was a filming site for the movie -- ran a feature story about the film in Thursday's edition.
Plans call for the film to be complete by February and then be viewed at movie festivals.
