  1. Notes:
    -Re: Cheaters: Tipster found that tweet & emailed it to me, didn’t actually see signage etc, so that is not a direct tip- FYI.
    -We are probably going to be passing thru Stamford tomorrow so I’ll check out the Big C location and add updates if there are any.
    -Heard Green lantern shot over the weekend (at usual location in NOLA) so they may be off today.
    -‘For Colored Girls’: locations in NYC only thru last Sat- suspect they may be moving back to Atlanta, if anyone hears one way or the other, please let us know.
    -As I mentioned, we’ll be on the road til Tues if you have any tips, please leave them here ’til then, I’ll try to check in as much as possible, thanks!
    -I’ll try to update in AM as usual too, if anyone is looking for something specific, please leave that info here too, thanks!

  2. You’re amazing Christine! 🙂 I actually really like that tomorrow’s info is up so early. It makes it easier to plan the day out. 🙂

    Any further Colored Girls info is what I am currently looking for.

  3. Has anyone gone to Merrick this passed week to see Mildred Pierce? I am curious to know if Kate Winslet is expected on set.

    My girlfriend wants me to get an autograph from her because she loved her in The Reader! Go figure..haha

    • Kate was on set when I went on Wednesday. They were filming scenes at what is the main character’s house. As for the autographs, I’ve been trying for my cousin & haven’t had any luck.

      • you couldnt get close enough to talk to them? and what streets do they film on? whats the addy of the main charachters house? have you seen evan rachel wood? thanks

        • Kate walked right in front of us on Wednesday night, but it was dark & none of us knew it was her until a grip said it. They film a little up the block, and they have us watch from the corner so we’re not within “hey, how are you?” distance, but you can still see her. I haven’t seen ERW though at all.

    • Hi, I was at the Mildred Pierce set today. Kate Winslet was there but was not interested in us bystanders at all. Someone shouted her name and several men came running over and yelled at the man. The shooting set was very cool. I stayed for about 2 hours and I saw Evan Rachel Wood who turned the corner in an old fashioned taxi cab right in front of me. Very cool!

      • yea that was me who yelled out “Hi Kate!!” (i am a woman) she walked passed us so many times and did not even acknowledge us fans! I just said what everyone else wanted to say but didnt. Wish she was more friendly quite disappointing!

  4. what street are the filming mildred pierce on in merrick? and what does base camp mean? also how long will they be filming in merrick?

      • I’ll walk with my dog over to MP later. I haven’t met anyone but I havent tried either. Base camp judging by the location is just a block over from set 🙂

          • I was there for like 5-10 minutes. I left b/c Kate wasn’t going to be on set till 230, and my dog was getting restless and I wasnt in the mood to sit there. I walked by base camp, which is on merrick avenue in the temple beth am parking lot, not on frankel blvd.

    • Hey-
      Haven’t herd anything for sure yet this morning, checked usual suspects this morning too, @bostontweet @BeantownName, @Loadedgun, etc haven’t seen anything, will keep you posted if I do and please let us knwo if you hear anything new-thanks!

  5. Signage is up at 4000 West North Ave, Chicago. Talked with security guard and filming will begin at approx. 4am Monday.

  6. Whatever happened to all the photos I sent last week? if they are not posted I won’t bother in the future. It does take some time and $$ to do that as I don’t have computer. Thanks, Howard

    • Hey Howard,
      I’ll send you an email privately later but wanted to explain that I’m actually on vacation right now and in preparing for vaca, etc I didn’t have time to upload many pics last week and now don’t have the best inet connection where we are to post them. I apologize for the inconvience and admit I am behind on posting pics, but its not because I don’t appreciate them, its just simply a matter of uploading them all on my own and having a limited amount of time to do so this week. I will get them all posted as soon as I can. (not just yours but I fews others that need to go up as well).

  7. Here’s where The Fields was filming yesterday in NOLA, not sure if they are sitll there today but thought I’d add here just in case:
    (Thanks John)

  8. Something Borrowed signs are up for today on 22nd st between Broadway and Park. They are also on Broadway I believe.

  9. OK, one more thing: I’ll be driving a bunch today so won’t be able to check in much, if anyone sees any other locations around, please leave them here, it would hugely appreciated!
    And please spread the word about OLV if you have a chance via Twitter, FB or your own blogs, thank you all for all you do to keep the site going!
    Have a great day!

  10. Tyler Perry’s “Colored Girls” NYC: I went past Mornongside Ave in the 120’s on Saturday and saw absolutely nothing. But stumbled on them nearby setting up for a night time wedding scene on Manhattan Ave in the low 120’s. .
    Was it definitely Morningside AVE and not Morningside DRIVE where they shot last week ?? I thought of this possible glitch after I got home.

    Many Thanks

  11. I saw signs up in Red Hook Brooklyn yesterday for “the Adjustment Bureau.” The signs said June 10th filming and were along Van Brunt street (between king street and sullivan street.)

    I thought this filming wrapped?

  12. To the above: They are probaly doing re shoots or additional footage for Adjustment Bureau. The trailer is real weird..

  13. 1. Yes they r doing reshootz for ab this week! Thanks for the update gave been trying to track down locations!
    2. Just went by big c the r filming at uncle bobs self storagein back of lot looks like they r filming scene with rain it’s on Fairfield. They are also filming behind the Avalon on Stamford harbor apts I think the street is southfield both sets are pretty closed off the one at bobs had a few police there even when we were there so we didn’t stick around. Looks like they r bringing actors back and forth in grey vans we followed one but it pulled behind bobs so I didn’t see who got out.

  14. Just saw this tip today and am posting it here per your request Christine:

    NYC: For WEDS. JUNE 9th: “Lights Out” will be filming in the vicinity of Varick St. and West Broadway between Franklin and N.Moore Streets from 6 am to 3 am.

  15. Hi Everyone,

    Christine asked me to post a message here to let you know that due to her feeling under the weather today she may not get to post any updates until later today.

    She apologizes and asks that everyone share any tips that they find in this comment section until she is able to do a proper update.



  16. John Krasinski and G. Goodwin filming a scene for Something Borrowed right now in front of Shake Shack in Madison Square Park.

  17. White Collar is filming today on North End Ave in Battery Park/World Financial District. Got a tweet that they are there now and it’s pretty cold near the Hudson where they are filming.

  18. Someone tweeted that the Adjustment Bureau is filming in Madison Square Park today. Someone else tweeted that he’s on set now, playing an FBI agent. Apparently the Park is a popular place today, if Something Borrowed is there also.

  19. Molly Sims will be unveiling her new billboard for Zico Coco Water at 12pm today at the corner of Thompson and Watts, for anyone that’s interested.

  20. Mildred Pierce filming is returning to the Glendale section of Queens,NY on Thursday, June 10th. New signs have been posted on Myrtle Ave. between 68th and 70th Sts. They recently filmed in the cemetary (All Faiths) on June 2nd, and are now returning this Thursday. What’s up with that? Production problem?

    • I was there a few day’s ago in Glendale , the guy said they will be back they had someone get hurt on set so they did’nt finish an they will be back, thank for letting me know

      • Actually, it was Kate Winslet that was injured. She was playing with her little boy during a lunch break, when she fell and hit her head, I think. They suspended filming for the rest of the day.

    • Read post #35 in this thread. Christine is under the weather and unable to post. All of today’s tips that people have (and I also included one for tomorrow, Weds.) are being written here in this thread.

    • You must have missed the post from John above. Christine is ill today, and wasn’t able to post today’s locations as usual. She will try to post something later today.

  21. Someone said Smurfs were filming in the vicinity of 61st and 5th Ave, but I can’t confirm that . Anyone see anything for the little blue people?

  22. Some “Untitled New York Movie” will be shooting Wed. 6-9-10 from 6am-2am near Water st and Broad St.

    Also, there seemed to be some filming going on this morning in front of the NYSE. Does anyone know what this could be?

  23. Thanks guys for the tips etc I’ll reply more later- believe it or not I’m sitting in the ER- hopefully this won’t lead to surgery- wish me luck!

  24. Re: Adjustment Bureau, I’ve found tweets that said the 70th floor of the GE Bldg. would be closed for filming, that there were also signs near St. Patrick’s Cathedral, in addition to the signs at Madison Sq. Park. Not sure of the dates, but maybe someone can check if you’re in the vicinity of any of these locations. Someone did see trailers with Matt Damon’s name and Emily Blunt’s.

  25. There is a new movie called Certainty, that is shooting tonight in Ft. Totten, Bayside, Queens. They will be shooting 6/8, 6/9 & 6/11, and these will all be night shoots, going all night. The movie stars Caitlin Fitzgerald from It’s Complicated, Valerie Harper, Giancarlo Esposito, Bobby Moynihan from SNL and Loudon Wainwright III, so I’m assuming it’s a comedy.

  26. There’s something filming in Old Town Pasadena… No idea what it is though. I walked past and they had stuff that had the Warner Bros logo, if that’s helpful at all. I don’t know the exact address but it’s filming right near the intersection of Green St and De Lacey Ave

  27. Danny Glover just tweeted that he is filming a Turkish Film in NYC, any idea what it is and where it is filming?

    • Let me edit that last comment. I’d seen casting calls for 5 Minarets about 3 weeks ago, but couldn’t find any info on it, just that it was supposed to start shooting 6/2. Christine heard that Danny Glover was in it, so I assumed that’s what he was he talking about. I just did a search and found a site for a project called Mooz-lum the movie, starring Danny Glover, which is shooting in Ann Arbor, so that is probably it. I guess I jumped the gun on assuming it was 5 Minarets, since that is also a movie about Muslims.

    • I know Ann Arbor is in Michigan, but it seems unlikely he would be involved in 2 Muslim films shooting at the same time. Maybe they are just shooting some scenes here in NYC. Hard to tell.

      • Okay, I just checked DG’s twitter post & he did say he was here for 2 weeks, then off to Istanbul. Since 5 Minarets is only shooting thru 6/25, looks like I may have been right to begin with. I need to trust my first instincts more.

  28. Saw a casting call that ROYAL PAINS is going to be filming again tomorrow (6/9) in Cutchogue, Long Island at the Pellegrini winery on Rte 25. I drove by there on Monday & saw alot of people sitting at tables in a partially covered area out front. 2 police cars were parked on either side of the winery – couldn’t really hang out to watch the goings-on.

  29. Here are a few more of the tips I missed that were for today (though I think most are already posted here):
    -Cheaters shooting at Green Mill – Chicago- Thanks Josh
    -Smurfs filming in Prospect Park, NYC – Thanks Akiva
    _SOBO filming outside Shake Shack in Madison Square Park. John Krasinski & Ginnifer Goodwin are there.- Thanks Grace
    -Something Borrowed trailers are on 21st/22nd and broadway. John K has already been spotted this morning- Thanks kate

  30. I just wanted to thank everyone for pitching in w/ tips! I think I have all of your tips for tomorrow, etc, thank you! And thanks for the well wishes I received via email, etc, I am back home and doing better so should be able to get somewhat back to normal tomorrow.

  31. One more thing… we know about the malware warnings some people are getting and are literally working on it right this min so hopefully we’ll be able to take care of it. thanks for your patience and heads up.
