Hilary Swank may shoot portions of upcoming film “Betty Anne Waters” in Jackson, Michigan prison

Two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank might be hanging out in a Jackson prison this spring.

On Wednesday, crew members from her upcoming film “Betty Anne Waters” will tour the Southern Michigan Correctional Facility to scout possible filming locations.

The prison, which the state closed in November 2007, was last used in May when portions of the film “Street Boss” were shot inside the walls.

This movie, will be a much bigger production, and most of it will be shot in Ann Arbor, said state Department of Corrections spokesman Russ Marlan.

It is based on the true story of Waters, who worked her way through law school so she could free her brother who she believed was wrongly accused of murder in Massachusetts.

Tony Goldwyn (the bad guy in “Ghost”) is directing the movie.
