Below is a list of movies filming in Michigan on Wednesday, July 14, 2010.
•Real Steel, starring Hugh Jackman and Evangeline Lilly, is filming at the Detroit Fire Department Headquarters on the corner of Washington Blvd and Larned St. (Thanks Jessica)
Here are some more details about the Real Steel set:
The movie will be there through July 27th, according to a letter to local businesses from the film company. The “gym” set (boxing ring and several large dented steel punching bags) was built on the main floor garage of the Fire Department building, $180,000 was spent installing a hardwood floor over the concrete (per one of the firemen), which will be torn up and disposed of once the filming is complete. Yesterday, a truck was spraying down the entire sidewalk and front steps of the COBO conference center which is located directly across the street from the fire department for a scene they were shooting. They have, so far, filmed scenes on the roof of the building, in the alley next to the building (next to a large army green painted work truck), and scenes in the street on Larned, outside of the Fire Dept building. (Thanks Dave)
•Machine Gun Preacher, starring Gerard Butler, is still set up at the Hearthside Mobile Park in Melvindale, MI. They are also set up at the Melvindale Elementary School (Allendale Elementary) for possible filming today. Filming at the Crossroads Bar will likely take place tomorrow. (Thanks James and Kathy)
•Scream 4 is filming at the Hutzel Women’s Hospital in Detroit. (Thanks Toni)
•Yesterday, we got a tip that Real Steel was filming at Nicholson Terminal & Dock. But, last night, we got a second tip that it is actually The Double, starring Richard Gere, filming at the dock, which does make sense since Real Steel is set up at the Fire Department. If anyone can confirm either way or verify they are still there, let us know, thanks! (Thanks Jack and Matthew)
