Dead Man Down / Political Animals / Update / Wizard World

Hey everyone! I know it has been quite a while since my last past and I know a lot of things are happening in Philadelphia, however unfortunately for me, my computer broke and I am in the process of getting a new one. Until then, I have to use a tiny netbook for my blog. But anyway, you all want to know about whats filming and not me!

First of all, the film Dead Man Down starring Colin Farrell and Terrence Howard has been filming in the city for the past few weeks and since I was in Florida during the majority of the outdoor scenes, I missed quite a lot of action. Never fear, my good friend, PhillyChitChat was on the scene as usual and managed to get a bunch of great shots and details about the filming. In the end of April, they shot a scene which involved Colin Farrell on a window ledge and he was throw out of the building which I am sad to have missed. Word is that for the next three weeks the film will be on a soundstage.

The other production currently filming in Philadelphia ia a USA network political drama, Political Animals starring Sigourney Weaver and Ellen Burstyn. The show is about a former first lady who divorces her husband and is currently serving as Secretary of State. The show revolves around her job and her family. I got to be an extra in one of the scenes that was filmed last week and it was really great to see such legends in the same room. As usual, I try not to talk too much about projects I work on, but I did manage to take a few pictures of the star which I will be more to happy to post after the show airs in July. The scene I was in I had to dress in business attire and went with a friend of mine.
The scene was inside and there were about 600 extras. I cannot say too much about the scene until the show airs, but I can say that it was a political scene, yea really.  Since the show was picked up for 10 episodes expect to hear more about this one filming in the city.

So, think that two things filming in Philadelphia is cool, well just wait because your head might EXPLODE! Starting in July (right around when Dead Man Down finishes) Harrison Ford will be in town filming a new movie entitled Paranoia. Also in the film is Gary Oldman and Liam Hemsworth. Stay tuned for updates on this project as well.

As a reminder I will be attending Wizard World Philadelphia again this year and I cannot wait to bring you all the great adventures I go on this year at the convention. Hopefully I will be able to edit video, I will make it happen! Wizard World Philadelphia is happening this year at the Convention Center on May 31, June 1, 2, and 3. If you have a chance I strongly suggest you go because each year gets better and better. This year a bunch of huge celebrities are set to appear including Chris Hemsworth, Stan Lee, the entire cast of the original Evil Dead film, William Shatner, and about a hundred more. Check out for more information and I hope to see you there!
