Friday filming location / Set Photo / CBS 3 Clip / The Lovely Bones

The crew is back at Rittenhouse Square and the surrounding area again tomorrow.

New Photo from Joshua:

On someone posted this set report:

Was there all day today - they shot a traffic scene with a cop and a taxi driver (who actually looked a bit like a young Christopher Lloyd) at 18th and Rittenhouse Ave, a small backstreet behind the Square. I hung around and ended up as a background extra before being tossed because I had a crummy Phillies T-Shirt on. The people were cool, they figured I just got caught up in the mass of people - no security until M. Night showed up - set locked down then. They had a big crane shot and several POV shots on the Southeast corner of Rittenhouse Square. Very cool.

CBS 3 (KYW-TV) did a story on The Happening today here is the link

Photos / Set Reports from the Philly Shoot and Spoiler

I got these photos from Charlie via e-mail:

^Rittenhouse Sqaure

^Mark Wahlberg at Pine & Smedley

^Mark and M. Night

This is from

In Rittenhouse now. I saw Marky and M.Night yesterday filming on Pine St. It is interesting at first but sooo repetitive. They shot the same 15 seconds about 10 times over 40 minutes. Absolute perfectionists. One shot was scrapped when the sunlight changed a bit. In another, it seemed that the school bus was late for its cue.

In the park, dozens of extras are holding still as a boom camera pans over them, then someone (a real chcaracter?) falls down on the ground. Bizarre to watch. Even more bizarre because I walked through the scene before I recognized I was in the shot.


This is a part what they shooting right now:

Coming tonight... a hint
Got this Set report from Wynnwood in my e-mail this morning:

I went down to the set today to the Kaiserman JCC.
They're not actually filming at the JCC, I guess it's just where the extras meet. But -
there were trailers, and food tents, and signs saying "TH," "Crew Parking,"
and stuff like that at the JCC. Where they were filming was in a neighborhood,
near 69th and City Line. There were a lot of roadblocks, and a lot of police cars.
There wasn't really much to see, except for the trailers that were there, and a bunch
of people walking around. You had to stay and watch behind the roadblock. The scene
they were doing was a Jeep, I think, that crashes into a tree. We waited quite a while,
and talked to various people. There were a bunch of different sets in that neighborhood.
Before we left, my mom talked to a guy that said that they were having camera problems,
and that they would be there, but he couldn't give her a definite time. They were
filming elsewhere, at 69th and City Line, where there were also roadblocks and police cars.
I highly doubt you'd see the actors, though.
