After a slow winter, the film industry in Pittsburgh, PA is once again heating up as two high profile projects begin filming in the area.
Last week, Out of the Furnace, which was also known as Dust to Dust but now seems to be Out of the Furnace once again, has just started filming in Braddock, PA.
Out of the Furnace stars Christian Bale as an ex-convict attempting to return to society. Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Robert Duvall and Zoe Saldana also star.
Mosser Casting is handling extras casting, check out their Facebook Page for more info.
On Monday, April 23, another A-List project, Promised Land, also begins filming near Pittsburgh through June 4.
The Gus Van Sant- directed project stars Matt Damon as a sales executive who arrives in a small town only to have his whole life called into question. John Krasinski, Frances McDormand, Rosemarie DeWitt, and Hal Holbrook are also set to appear in the film.
One confirmed location for Promised Land is the West Mifflin Middle School on Camp Hollow Road in West Mifflin, PA. They will shoot several scenes at the vacant school at some point during filming.
Extras casting information can be found on the Promised Land Casting Facebook page.
Though it can sometimes be difficult to find exactly where a movie is filming, the Pittsburgh Film Office does sometimes list road closures for filming on their website.
In the past, Pittsburgh fans have shared tips to help track the movies One Shot, The Dark Knight Rises, Abduction and The Perks of Being A Wallflower via our Open Threads so we’re hoping we can duplicate that success with Promised Land and Out of the Furnace!
