HO­TELS VY­ING TO BE IN “FREAK POWER” MOVIE

The Denver Post - - NEWS - By The Du­rango Her­ald

du­rango» Ho­tels in south­west Colorado are com­pet­ing to be fea­tured in a new movie about gonzo jour­nal­ist Hunter S. Thomp­son that will be filmed next sum­mer.

Five ho­tels in Du­rango, Sil­ver­ton and Tel­luride are be­ing con­sid­ered for the movie “Freak Power.”

Stephani Bur­ditt of Colorado’s south­west­ern eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment district says the movie’s pro­duc­tion team wants to mimic the Ho­tel Jerome in Aspen as it looked in the 1970s.

It un­der­went so many ren­o­va­tions that it was deemed un­suit­able for the movie.

“Freak Power” will trace Thomp­son’s 1970 un­suc­cess­ful cam­paign to be­come Pitkin County sher­iff.

Thomp­son died in 2005 in Woody Creek.
