FIlming Location

Sorry about the lack of filming updates. We have learned that they are filming still in Ridley Creek State Park in Newtown Square. On IMDB a posters says they will be there until Thursday a source says Wednesday.

Mark Mark has had another interview and here is an excpert:

Are you still doing The Happening?

Mark Wahlberg: Yeah. I'm still going to be shooting that for another week.Can you tell us a little bit about it?Mark Wahlberg: Yeah, I'm thrilled about it. It's a complete departure for me. I play a teacher, and Zooey Deschanel plays my wife. She's a therapist. The movie is really about our relationship and the conflicts we are having, set in this horrific disaster. Working with Night is awesome. I'm glad that I worked with him before I ventured off into directing. He brings a whole other element to the game. It's very impressive to see.

What is so different about M. Night as a director?

Mark Walberg: I haven't found a good way to describe it, but I can give you an example. We shot a five-page scene that was taking place in a classroom. Any other director that I have worked with would have taken three days to shoot it. We shot it by lunch. And it's beautiful. He just knows what he wants. It's all thought out. I've never walked into a trailer and the sides are there, and there are entire storyboards for the day. You know exactly what you'll be shooting. He knows exactly what he wants. It's been a great experience. You never know until your done. But it feels pretty special.

Why is this role so different for you?

Mark Wahlberg: I play a kind of nerdy science teacher from Philadelphia. I am very intimidated by my wife. And I can't connect outside of the classroom. I am the best teacher that you have ever seen. My students love me. I have this great connection with them, and I am extremely passionate about what I do. But I have some difficulties in other departments. Especially with my wife. I'm not the man that she wants me to be. I am extremely positive and optimistic, and she is the exact opposite. It's really about their relationship, which is great. You know, I did have a nightmare that Night and I got in a fight on the set.
