    -The Beautiful Girls filming at 613 S Grand Ave
    -So Big filming at 1317 Willow St
    -Black Dogs filming DA 472-10 @ 2nd St, Hewitt St. – Santa Fe Ave & Vignes St, Temple St. – 2nd St.
    Check back in the morning for more L.A. locations…

  2. some additional info related to my last tip:

    There are ‘HB’ signs posted for “Horrible Bosses” beginning at the middle of Vermont Road, going all the way up into the park. The Security guard that i spoke to said that they will be filming there tomorrow as well.

    • I wish they would film somewhere close to my city. They were in Dearborn to film at a middle school, but I couldn’t go because I was watching Gerard Butler film at a trailer park in my city. I love the Scream franchise and watching them film the 4th installment would be awesome! If anyone finds out more Scream 4 filming locations (that are close to Melvindale, MI), please let me know. 🙂

  3. Heard on local radio that the new Pierce Brosnan, Marisa Tomei, Ed Harris and Jennifer Conelly movie is filming at the Dearborn Performing Arts Center. Can anybody confirm this and upcoming locations?

    • They were filming a movie called Salvation Boulevard at the Performing Arts Center a few moths ago but the movie has since wrapped, they may be back for re-shoots?

  4. Can anyone tell me,are they filming reel steel at the old firehouse in Detroit today,,and,,is Gerards movie filming in the trailer park today still?
    I live 2 hours north,and want to come down,my son wants to see “wolverine” Just don’t want to go all the way down there,to have them not be at those locations still.
    Thanks for the help!

    • not 100% where either is honestly, they do have permits for the firehouse through 7.27 but a couple days this week they have been at other locations, if you felt like a drive it might be worth checking out, have heard from a lot of people who have seen Hugh there (filming outside, coming in and out, etc).

  5. Just pulled this from another site…anyone know if it is true??

    Machine Gun Preacher, starring Gerard Butler, is filming at at Kercheval and East Grand Blvd in Detroit

    • check the notes in the notes in the post above, someone was out there is this morning and they were tearing everything down, looked like they were done there.

  6. Anyone know where Bones will be filming on Tuesday? According to TJ Thyne, they start filming then..
    And also, anyone know if House will be filming any scenes outside of the studio?
    thank you!

  7. Woww can’t believe Jennifer Aniston is fimling at Griffith Park! I was just there last Saturday night! 🙁 What luck….. :/

    Anyway, here’s info on 90210 filming on Monday!
    “On Monday, July 19, the TV show 90210 will be filming in front of the studio and down Elena Avenue. Leave a few minutes early for your appointment so you can find a parking space and watch the action. It will be fun.”

  8. Harold and Kumar is setup at the Detroit Opera House

    Looks like Real Steel will be filming using the length of Washington blvd soon

  9. my idiot brother started filming at 4pm today in London Terrace Gardens (450 building) in the penthouse. Only one apartment on the floor so no way of getting up there unless you have a pass or something. Filming today and monday.

  10. Does anyone have any information about the Miley Cyrus and Demi Moore “LOL!”? They’re in town already but I didn’t think filming started until later next week.

  11. Looks like I missed it again The MPG production for machine gun preacher has wrapped in Detroit on washington street. I followed one of the trucks and lost it at woodward and 13 mile. Keep your eyes out for trucks in that area and Possible in pontiac

    • good detective work Dan! 🙂

      Yeah, someone was out checking out a bunch of the Detroit locations on Friday night for us and said that The Double def. wrapped at that location, MGP wrapped at Washington Blvd location, that the Salvation Blvd re-shoot rumor wasn’t happening.

      But, he did say that the set for Real Steel was still very much up and active as of Friday night. The boxing stuff was still all set up and he suspected they would still be there for a while, which lines up with what we heard from a local businessperson, that they would be there through the 27th.

      I haven’t heard anything for MGP, Harold & Kumar or The Double for Mon though, any ideas?

  12. MGP was not filming at kercheval in dertroit…signs were there…but lot was a ghost town….reel steel was filming Friday…went down and watched for a few hours…take note..they do not allow pictures and make you stay across the street at cobo…walked around the block..can’t get close to the building at all!
    If anyone has any info on where MGP is filming this week..I sure would appreciate it!
