Things started happening at a faster pace at the Corktown set over the last few days. As you can see from the pictures, a lot of the structures that had built over the last month were moved to the street in front of the black building, creating the look of a giant crater? Or maybe just the collapse of the building. It’s hard to say at this point, but there’s a lot of debris that could be a mixture of building and pavement. The large wooden wall backed by shipping containers is being painted, so it wont be the green screen that most of us had anticipated. In fact it looks a little like the black building. Security has tightened with a car and guard at each road closing, and green netting around the construction lot itself. The road in front of the building is also closed (obviously!). It’s impossible at this point to tell if these will be the only road closings for this set, or if they’ll widen it a little to keep prying eyes (and cameras) out. Obviously they will try to keep people back as far as possible and they will likely tell people they can’t take pictures. It’s assumed that filming at this set will be the week of August 4, the same week they’ll be filming other scenes and car chases around the city.
In other news there are rumors of filming west of Ann Arbor, and also in Metamora township. Those are so far, just rumors flying around on the internet! Unless there are pictures, we don’t believe you 🙂
