Come on now phillygirl think positive, they may need local folk to work as extras!!!!! They do that alot in England anyway.
You are sounding quite sensible about the whole thing but it would be great if you did get to meet him.

City Gal - Boy I did have that poo-poo attitude didn't I?!

I know how to find a band but I've never had to deal with finding a movie shoot. And you know after posting that reply to topic, I immediately went to the Paramount website, got their mailing address and am sending them a letter to see if they can provide me with any shoot info. Who knows, maybe they will maybe they won't but at least I tried.

And I see from the IMBd site that Donald Sutherland is also going to be in the movie. I always hate it when fans play the "Remember me?" card but he filmed a movie in my dad's precinct a few years ago in Detroit so maybe I can play that card and see where it leads. Ahhh, the wheels are turning!! I can see the smoke coming from my ears as I type!!

Well it's a pity Travelprincess hasn't been back to the mb's, she works at paramount.
Don't you have a local council like we do over here, maybe they can provide information as I'm assuming the production company will have to let them know if they are planning shooting there.
I wonder if the car chases will happen there, what's the place like?

Philly is a hop skip & a jump from New Jersey. Any assistance you can give would be WONDERFUL - Thanks City Gal.

I don't know who I would contact in Philly about the possibility of a movie filming in the area. Usually its on the local news but I haven't heard anything yet.

I'm hoping that maybe someone at Paramount will take pity on a fan and pass along some info.

I'll keep you guys informed!

Okay - I'm trying to keep myself from getting into trouble so I will be VERY careful what I post. So far, no one is able to tell me anything which is what I would expect. The Greater Philadelphia Film Office has a website www.film.org and they say that they don't know of "The Italian Job" filming there so I may have reached a dead end. Ben Affleck is going to be here middle of August till end of filming doing "Jersey Girl" in case anyone cares!!

Why is it I can always get the low down on the person I'm NOT looking for?

I don't know if Mark S would know, there was a test screening of Charlie in Philly and he didn't get an invite to it.

But, its always like that isn't it? I went looking for the Hulk filming not too long ago, and did find the area, but they had a 2 block cushion (with a hill too) on filming, so you couldn't see a darn thing. Saw fake Santa Monica cop cars about.

Then 2 weeks later I'm on the bus and we zoom right by the stars filming a scene. If only I didn't have to go to work that day...

Anycase, IMDB isn't that accurate, its not bad, but not exactly reliable. Anycase, could be just 2nd unit filming, in which case, Mark would most likely not be there. All I've read in the trades (ie HR & Variety listings) are LA and Italy. Maybe they were thinking of doing Philly and someone passed the info to IMDB and then budget concerns, they decided against it.

If the movie sites think its a big deal (ie something movie geeks are interested in), expect news to leak out. There wasn't much on Charlie, but I suppose romantic thrillers aren't exactly the cup of tea for the mostly male centric audience they cater to. TIJ will be more like it, robbery, fast cars...

Very true on the local news sources for filming (unless you're in LA or NYC - happens every day so its not as a big of a deal) I knew about the filming of The Hulk from leaks from the local University paper (they filmed some at their lab), which in turn showed up in the local news and soon after on TV.

Well, I'm going to try my darndest Lianne!! The Philly Film group knew nothing about any filming here so who knows. She said she could have at least told me it was if she knew for sure but not where or when.

I can be a real determined bugger when I set my mind to it so I'll be kind and professional and try my darndest!!

And Mark S. - if you want to throw a bone this poor girl's way feel free to email me!! I'd owe you big time!

Okay, I may be able to get off my knees and stop begging people for help!!

I found a YAHOO! Website with a movie review (Just popped up there today.) and it says:
"Filming: Production is scheduled to start on August 3rd, 2000 in Los Angeles at the Paramount lot, with location filming also being done in Italy."

I emailed the guy and asked for confirmation but nothing yet. So maybe I might be just like the rest of you and missed him!

Do you know if L.A. is still the initial location for the shoot, and how far back production might be pushed there? Just curious...thanks

Hey I'm not a headless chicken, she lives so close it would be criminal if she missed out on seeing him, just remember, if he comes to London Lynne....................

Hey Nashvillegirl, welcome to the boards, do you plan to go to LA?
