If you have any scoop about where a movie or TV show is filming, let us know about it at or at!


  1. Does anyone know who will be on the set of GG ? I’m driving all the way from PA and I’m really hoping to see Blair.. Any info would be helpful, thanks.

    • On Wed they will be back at Columbus Circle, didn’t see any casting calls or anything for today, wonder if they’ll do a Wed- Sun schedule this week? If I hear anything else I’ll let you know.

  2. In regards to Blue Bloods you may get to see the main characters, however they are guarded so be nice and patient otherwise you can forget seeing or signing anything.
    Gossip Girls is the same way. Let the actors do their job and during a break they will stop for a photo. You will not know who is on set until you see them.
    Tower Heist is scheduled to redo the Macy’s Parade next weekend. They will be working both Sat & Sun. I was told Eddie Murphy is not in the movie even though he is listed.

  3. Just a note for Breaking Dawn, we’ve gotten a few tips that they are filming in Port Allen, but if you take a look at the open thread, there’s been some discussion about it and it looks like the Port Allen address floating around is incorrect, they have also built the Cullen’s house at Celtic and it sounds like they currently filming scenes at the Cullen’s house.

  4. It really doesn’t matter what The Smuggles movie is (btw I was trying to look up for it and couldn’t find a word about it) but these mofo’s take away about 5 blocks of parking for two days (both sides of the streets) which is simply RIDICULOUS!
    I understand they need room to shot those movies, but I pay taxes for these streets and my house. All of the sudden I got nowhere to park my car because of this shooting.
    This law should be changed. If the movie makers want our parking, they should have pay for a garage for local residents during thw time of shooting these movies.

    • I’m pretty sure Smuggles or Smuggler is a fake name for whatever they’re shotting (meaning it’s probably some big movie). In any case, as the above said they’ve been taking up 5 blocks of parking making it IMPOSSIBLE to park in the neighborhood and now our effing car got towed. I agree, the movie company should have to pay for those of us displaced b/c of their filming.

  5. does anyone know where exactly where the movies “So Undercover” featuring Miley Cyrus and “The Lucky One” featuring Zac Efron are being filmed in Louisiana? Thank you!

  6. I stopped by the gossip girl set around 3. They were filming at the Palace. Ed and Blake were there. I didn’t see much of anything.

  7. How can I be an extra or actor in the movie Right Angle filming in Michigan. Also 5 movies are coming to Michigan in 1-4 months

    Waco starring Adrien Brody and Kurt russel
    Towers Heist with ben stiller and Eddie Murphy
    Ideas of March starring George Clooney
    Vegnence a love story starring Samuel L. Jackson and Abigail Breslin
    Giant Mechanical Man starring Topher Grace and Jenny Fischer
    SpiderMan 4 Reboot starring Andrew Garfield

    • hey max, where did you hear about Tower Heist, they are currently filming in NYC, and as far as I know that will be the location?
      I also thought they scrapped the plans for Spider-Man in MI, it starts in L.A. in 2 weeks.

  8. There was a extra casting call for tower heist coming in the next month and Spiderman will be filming in march first La then Ny or chi-town and then they wil do some scenes her in detroit.
