MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Scenes for a new movie will be filmed in northern Iowa starting in about a month.

Wendell Jarvis, director of the Iowa Film Office, said the movie in part is based on the travels of a Laurens man who used a riding lawn mower to visit his brother.

Jarvis said more details will be released about the movie in the coming weeks. But it will be called ``The Straight Story.''

Jarvis said the movie will be directed by David Lynch. Lynch's credits include the films ``The Elephant Man,'' ``Blue Velvet'' and the cult television show ``Twin Peaks.''
