  1. When does Gossip Girl filming in Paris end? And do you know of other co stars besides Blake, Leighton, & Ed will show up to shoot in Paris.

  2. via @andykizzes24

    they are filming right outside my building @olv wall street any idea what it is?

    Anyone know what might this be filming on Wall St in NYC. I was thinking it could be ‘Arthur’ since we don’t have anything for that yet. Also, Arthur will be shooting tomorrow so be on the look out for signs! FYI: Arthur is a remake of the 1980s movie w/ Russell Brand.

  3. Got a few requests from people looking for info re:
    Horrible Bosses (L.A.)
    For Colored Girls (Atlanta) –which I think is primarily in studio
    Walking Dead (Atlanta)
    Burn Notice (Miami)
    Fringe (Vancouver)
    Supernatural (Vancouver)
    Memphis Beat (NOLA)

    If anyone has info on these or any other project, please let us know, thanks!!

  4. Never made it to Penn to check out the Margin Call shoot the other day but was going to tonight since they are filming outside. I’ll post a comment if I see anything.

    • Just to be clear, I’m not 100% that’s where they will be but that has been where they have been for so long, it seems like they will be back there- let us know what you find tonight and I’ll let you know if I see anything else.

      • Let me add that the casting call did not specify exteriors, but since they were looking for pedestrians, I’m assuming there will be at least 1 exterior scene. The other extras were bankers and security guards, so it seems likely they’ll shoot at One Penn. What it DID specify is that it’s a 3am call time for the extras, so the exterior shoot might not be until after that time, but I can’t say anything for sure.

        • I would have loved to be a background actor for this movie. I wished I would have contacted the right people to be apart of this film.

      • Mary McDonnell is on set tonight. Someone on the crew just tweeted that he had met President Roslin ,her character on Battlestar Galactica

  5. anyone know if jb smoove actor of leon on curb is around for filming?

  6. My girlfriend works at the Warner Center in Woodland Hills and she just got a flyer saying they are going to be filming in that area. FILMING ON OWENSMOUTH, ERWIN AND VICTORY BLVD on Monday, July 12th and Tuesday, July 13th, from approximately 7:00AM and 10:00PM. Its A Warner Bros project and the scenes will involve a low flying Helicopter and automatic full load gunfire will be heard. Further, simulated bullet effects will be seen on bodies. Any ideas what this film is???

  7. There’s some “special event” at the flower shop on 21st street and 9th ave. There are paparazzis outside. Any ideas what’s going on or who will be there?

  8. Does anyone know what they have been filming in Glen Cove, NY this week, other than Royal Pains? The set signs around town read “BE”….the base camp is @ the VFW
