  1. Michigan note:

    –We’ve a few different things about LOL, they will be filming in Birmingham but one report said it won’t be until the middle of the week and that on Monday they will continue filming at the location on Jefferson & Joseph Campau in Detroit. It looks like they were filming on Woodbridge St, that’s where the trailers were.

    -We heard THE DOUBLE is filming in a warehouse in Detroit and is done on Tues (8/3).

    -–We heard REAL STEEL wrapped at the building they were filming in behind the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit last week. Any ideas where they are now?

    –VAMPS begins filming this week in Detroit, any locations yet? (I’ll post more about this soon)

    –Last week MACHINE GUN PREACHER was in Canton, not sure where they are today, they have about a week and a half left in MI and at one point we heard they would be filming in a studio before they wrapped.

    –That leaves SCRE4M as far as we know they wrapped in Dexter last week, any ideas where they are now?

  2. Does anyone have any information about the location of shooting for Detroit 1-8-7, that cop show with Michael Imperioli?? Thanks.

  3. Scream is definitely at waterworks location again….still very closed set with very little visibility and tight security…

    • thanks for the Scream info, we knew they were going to be back because there was security there all last week but wasn’t sure exactly when. Anyone know how long they will be there?

      • I’m not going back to the Barn now that Wes Craven is tweeting that they’re going to shoot paparazzi in the cornfields 😉

  4. Where is MGP filming today. Anyone know. Somebody said possibly Detroit or Dearborn. Wonder if they are back at the Bridge Street Cafe? Wish I could help with Scream – don’t know anything about the length of time they will be there.

  5. What are the rules/laws when taking pictures and video at locations that are clearly public access? I went to the Harold and Kumar set and the PAs threatened to have us and anyone else removed BY police for taking pictures. I said, “well, then I will go onto the side walk or across the street.” They balked at that. Furthermore, they wouldn’t allow pictures during set ups and down time. BOO H&K PAs!

    • I spoke to police who told us that essentially the production crew/security could not stop anyone taking pictures on public property. But I have also heard such warnings from security people. Others have politely said, “no flash photography and please don’t take pictures during actual filming.” When a security guy was rude, verging on abusive to a friend, she reported him to someone else on the security team and he toned down his behavior a lot.

    • I think it’s pretty much common sense not to take pictures during filming. they wanna keep their production off the internet. msot of these are million dollar projects why would you ruin them by putting pictures of whats going on in them on the internet (not saying you or everyone will) but thats where they end up. you can see where theyre coming from. they dont have to be rude but probably in dealing with the same nonsense all the time you get frustrated.

      • Thanks for the info. I respect no filming during takes. As far as internet posts, sites like this post stills all the time. Events in public places should be considered just that “public”. Rudeness from PAs is unacceptable. Filming in Detroit is new, and exciting for those of us that live here. I’m sure the novelty will wear off soon, but in the mean time, respect on all sides.

  6. A friend of my younger sister said he got something saying they were going to be shooting MGP pretty much in front of where he lives. He moved and my sister is out of the country but all I know is that it’s around one of the Plymouth Canton schools. I know that’s not much of a help but I am trying to get more info on that.

  7. Home Run Derby is filming in Taylor, MI starting 8/2 through 8/16. Taylor Northeast Little League field. Not sure who is in it yet. Heard an A list star and an old time slugger.

  8. Does anyone know of a movie being filmed in Washington township- Ray township area? It is being filmed by SK. This morning there were film crews up and down 30 mile road. 2 miles east of the vandyke expressway. It’s a rural town two lane dirt roads. On set of a farm, with Old falling down barns, grain silos, corn fields

  9. I read a tweet last week from an electrician saying that he was setting up lighting for Real Steel which will be filming at the Silverdome soon.

    • Real Steel filmed outside the Silverdome on Friday evening/night. They had Opdyke shut down and the ramps to 59 were closed for it. Not sure if they are doing more there or not.

  10. Anyone know any of the exact filming locations for “LOL” yet? I know we keep getting downtown Detroit and Birmingham but does anyone know around what buildings/streets?
