  1. I am in chiago and saw signs up for something called E7 not sure if that is code for something but it was on a couple of street corners. Walked passed them quickly but its in the heart of chicago. Not sure if they were for filming tomorrow??

  2. Thanks for the current info. We are returning home from Chicago this afternoon and wanted to catch a glimpse of some filming of T3 before leaving.

  3. There are a whole lot of film trucks, trailers, food stations, etc. set up in Lincoln Park this morning. They are in front of the zoo south of the Fullerton and Stockton intersection. Anybody know what that one is? I assumed it was Ron Howard’s movie.

  4. Not sure what E7 is but we get permit info for those in L.A. too. I’ll see if anyone has info on that Linclon Park shoot. Ride-Along (a new Fox series) was suppose to start shooting in the city sometime soon too…
