I heard on the radio today (on JLB so I question the validity) that there are 37 permits to film IN the city. Does anyone have any additional insight onto this?

Filming is going to pick up, watch and see.

I was splunking in Flint at and old house and came across a couple of guys that were location scouting at an old school here in town. I don't know what their decision was about the school, as they had other locations to view.

It's kinda cool in a way to think we will be seeing pics of our home towns in films.

In honor of the original "Gaslight", "But I just set it right here...."

The emptiness of Detroit proper is perfect for filming.

The filming that is going on at Nick's is in conjuction with a project that is set up at the parking lot next to Broadway Lofts and Burt's. The building that houses Broadway Lofts is considered a hot set.

I don't know what the name of the project is, but one of the "stars" is that guy from The Matrix... the one who was originally a "good guy" that turned bad... Joe Pantoliano? Yes. According to IMDB, the film is called "The Job". http://www.imdb.com/title/tt12 30380/

A co-worker returned from the bank this morning and said that portions of Michigan Ave, Cass, Bagley, and Grand River were blocked off by film crews. I went ang looked out my window at lunch though and didn't notice anything.
