Filming Today and Other Days

From various anonymous sources (thanks) comes a possible shoot schedule with many gaps. Exact addresses are unknown nor are times and for how long. I just have potential locations. I am not entirely sure but I think the University of Pennsylvania part of the shoot is now complete.

Today, June 14
The Free Library on Ben Franklin Parkway, PA
Richmond Power Plant, PA
Update: I have been informed that additional filming occured at the PECO Power Plant and 25th and Washington (A chase scene with a silver Saturn with bullet holes in it).

June 18 "Saturn on Hook", no idea exactly what that means, maybe local Philly residents will
June 19 unknown location but involves a French theme. Update: location verified as Rittenhouse Square in Philly
June 22 Brooklyn Bridge, NY
June ? Bannerman Island, NY
June ? Princeton University

  1. about "Saturn on hook": there is an area of PA named "Marcus Hook". Maybe they will be filming at a saturn dealership? They are after all a division of GM

  5. I was actually at the Free Library of Philadelphia today (around 3:30 in the afternoon). You could go into the "popular reading" room, but the stairs to the reference sections (which is the bulk of the building) were roped off with a "filming" in progress sign. Outside you had eight trailer rigs with film equipment and a bunch of production assistant and staff looking people. My guess is they're using the interior of the Free Library as the library of whatever school Sam's attending. It's very "old school" looking (and modern university libraries don't really look like libraries anymore). Who knows, maybe he has to dig up an old volume related to his grandfather's expedition to figure out something going on in the present.

    There's maybe 8 reference rooms, each assigned a particular subject area at the Free Library main branch. To give you a sense of their atmosphere, any one could be a stand in for the library set used in the first three seasons of Buffy.

  6. We were there too around 7 until it started downpouring and thunder storming. We didn't see much (besides some crew dudes talking to us and a few scattered people) but as we were driving away we did see a car with a camera rig on it that people were attaching lights to so I am assuming in our attempt to find food we missed something going on involving some car or another (before the rain we saw people bringing props and whatnot into the library as well), by the time we got back they were packing up and heading out much to our displeasure haha.

    I'm just glad theres something going on in NY now, a lot closer to home and maybe we'll catch something then :)

  7. I'm wondering if anybody managed to see the scene with Rainn Wilson (Dwight Shrute on, "The Office") being filmed.

  8. Um, I know I posted this today, but it seems to have mysteriously disappeared... "Saturn on Hook" is Saturn of Philadephia. It is on Essington Ave, near Hook Rd. I drove there today. I can see why its a good spot for filming. Its a pretty desolate area, close to the airport and an oil refinery. There is really nothing there, so they can easily close the streets and film some chase sequences there.

    HAVING BEEN THERE, I WOULD ADVISE AGAINST GOING THERE TO WATCH FILMING. Hook Road looks kind of dangerous. A few big curves, narrow, lots of concrete guardrails (like as in it looks like a lot of people have crashed there...) Not too many spots to park or stand. Unless you are willing to park about 1/2 or 1 mile away and walk. Its in a so-so neighborhood. I'd advise against gawking.

  9. You forgot about Eastern State Pen. Gotta shoot there before they leave Philly.

  10. Oh the new York scenes are close to me hope to catch some but I leave for ca on the 24th if anyone finds out were and when the bannerman island scenes or when Princeton scenes are taking place pleaselpost :) thanks

  11. I don't think you can get to Bannerman Island easily, since it's an island. Everything I have found says to take some Pride of the Hudson cruise to SEE the island but nothing about actually getting on it (cept that it's dangerous.)

  12. Anyone know if/where they are shooting in Philly tonight?

    ReplyDelete
  13. ooh, hopefully they'll be by NYC for a while, although traffic will be a pain...

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'd imagine whatever they're filming on Brooklyn bridge prob won't take long cuz they prob can't close it for too long.. But that's clsest to where I love in jersey besides Princeton but no one has any clue when they're filming that

    ReplyDelete
  15. Bannerman Island is in Upstate New York...I have a feeling that that will be the day at Eastern State Penitentiary. Upstate NY is a pretty far distance to go to shoot one scene...

  16. Bannerman Castle.

    I called there, they (the actors) are NOT filming there, they are only filming from the air of the outside of the castle for scenery purposes.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Hm I read Bannerman was on the Hudson River, not sure if that goes all the way upstate but I assumed it was closer to the city. Makes sense the actors won't be there though it seems like a not so safe place to step foot onto.

    Anyone have a rough estimate of times for the Brooklyn Bridge yet?

    ReplyDelete
  18. According to Philly.com, they are filming at Eastern State Penitentiary today and Rittenhouse Square (doubling as Paris) later in the week (possibly the 19th).

    ReplyDelete
  19. They are unloading numerous cars as we speak outside City Hall. The yellow car was one of them.
