  1. -White Collar will also be in studio (Silver Cup East)
    -The Big C is in studio (300 Stillwater, Stamford)
    -Royal Pains is in studio – Broadway Stages in Brooklyn (Thanks John)

    • Cheaters is a day shoot, they are filming at the conservatory but it will still be open so there should be access though I can’t say how close you will actually be able to get to the production.

      • just left the set. Saw Ron & Clint Howard. Ron was thanking people at the conservatory, on his way out. Winona Ryder & Channing Tatum were filming there today.

  2. dose anyone know where the movie ”For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf” is filming tomorrow

    • If you check the calendar above, I added a post for this: the signs for “The Colored Girl” are on 120th – 123rd Street and along Morningside Ave in NYC.
      But I’m not sure if that is for this movie though-
      I thought they would be filming in Atlanta?

      • IMDB says it’s scheduled to shoot this summer in New York. Another source said it would start shooting some scenes in NY on June 1st. I have seen casting calls starting this week that were for “For Colored Girls”, so I imagine they’ve just shortened the title for the calls.

        • Okay, I just saw pics online of Tyler Perry, Janet Jackson and Kimberly Elise filming in NYC today, so they are definitely shooting here, but I couldn’t tell where they were filming.

        • this is def. it, photos of Whoopi and Janet are surfacing now, NY mayor’s office has it listed- so I’m guessing that has to be what the signs are for too. Earlier in the week when I first started getting asked about it, IMDb said it was going to shoot in Atlanta, so did an older article I had seen (and I think linked to) guess there was a change in plans…

          • but, I just found another casting call for 6/1-6/5 – so maybe they are moving to atlanta after this week? Annie, did your casting call give any end date?

            • I just rechecked them and no, they just gave specific dates for this week, but then I checked another source i had forgotten about, and they did give June 1-5 as the shoot dates. Someone on IMDB said they were shooting a few scenes here this week before moving to Atlanta, which looks like might be the case.

    • The city uses orange cones for a variety of reasons, most of which have nothing to do with filming. If they are filming, there will always be some sort of No Parking sign posted with permit nos. & production co. info. If there are just the orange cones, then they’ve restricted parking for some other reason. Look for the signs, not the cones.

  3. Christine I sent about 14 photos of SATC 2 premierer. Did you get them? I’m not sure if it went thru as ome emails were sent back

  4. Folks,

    When you see parking spots with cones and wonder what is filming, just look for those paper No parking signs and see what they say. Many times they list the name of the production company only, but the key is to see if the permit number starts with the letters “TV” “FF”( feature film), “C”
    ( commercial), “O” ( other, miscellaneous) etc. I believe the city no longer allows filming music videos anymore due to crowd control problems in the ghetto neighborhoods.

    In addition, flyers are sometimes posted for neighborhood notification of filming which divulge filming info. I have seen no parking signs posted many days before filming to give ample heads up notice regarding parking restrictions.

  5. I got a couple more requests for info for I Am Four in PItssburgh- they were filming late last night in Vandergrift, PA so guessing they won’t be filming til later today anyway. If anyone hears anything, let us know, thanks!

  6. Just added a bunch of updates to posts- one for The Crossing filming in Staten Island, know there is a megan fox movie The Crossing starting soon, any ideas what this might be?

    • Can’t find anything for The Crossing, but it’s not the Megan Fox movie as that one doesn’t even have a director yet. Besides, she was photographed in Hawaii today with Brian Austin Green.

      • yeah, I didn’t think it would be that movie since this was the first we’d heard of it, wish I was in Hawaii!

  7. anyone know if john krasinski has been on set lately for something borrowed? i’m thinking of heading down there to check out fliming but i’m really only interested in seeing him.

    • I didn’t see him yesterday, when I was there, but I did see pics of him online today in front of the apt. with Ginnifer Goodwin that had been taken yesterday.

    • Pretty sure Smurfs are off on Thurs & Fri, since they are filming on Sat & Sun. They seem to be on a Sat thru Wed schedule, like they were last week. I believe they are supposed to shoot thru the end of June.

  8. I walked my dog over to the mildred set (it’s on Fox Blvd). Really cool!! all the trailers are in the temple beth am parking lot on merrick avenue 🙂 They will be filming there till next week!

  9. C.P. CASTING in Boston IS SEEKING:
    (likely for What’s Your Number?)
    Approx. 22-38 years old,
    That MATCH the following descriptions:

    Blonde Female
    5’4”, 113lbs, 25″ waist, 34C

    Brown Haired Male
    6’0”, 185lbs (VERY FIT), 34″ waist

    Dark Blonde Haired Male
    6’4”, 170lbs (VERY SLIM), 31″ waist

    *A body double is a general term for someone who substitutes for the credited actor of a character and is used in shots involving brief nudity. This is well paid work (a minimum of $782.00 for 8 hours work, plus overtime…) in a feature film now shooting in Massachusetts. Please read the descriptions carefully, noting height AND weight.

  10. Not sure if this comment is in the right spot but does anybody know where Mildred Place is tomorrow (Fri)? Thanks!

  11. Does anybody know if Hilarie Burton has started filming yet for White Collar? She’s supposed to guest star in 6 episodes this season.
