Because, Apparently, Oklahoma City Makes a Better Fort Worth Than Fort Worth
And while producers did consider shooting in Texas, well, they decided to go with Oklahoma City -- which, at this very moment, so happens to be doubling for downtown Fort Worth circa 1957. Says producer Brad Schlei in one of several accompanying video interviews, "We went to Texas, we went to New Mexico ... and Michael really loved it here. It has everything we need." Which means the closest Killer Inside Me gets to Fort Worth is MC 900 Ft Jesus's 1991 track off Welcome to My Dream, apparently.
