Movie shoot to close down MainStrasse today

A Hollywood film being shot in Greater Cincinnati will shut down a portion of Covington throughout the day on Tuesday, FOX19 reports.

Main Street in MainStrasse has been transformed to look like Aspen, Colo. in the 1970s for filming of “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile,” a biopic about serial killer Ted Bundy starring Zac Efron and Lily Collins.

Gotti is getting poor reviews:

This quote stood out to me:
When filming wrapped in August 2016, Connolly praised Cincinnati for providing locations that looked like New York City. Ehrlich wasn't impressed. He said it was "a cheap-looking film that expends zero energy attempting to capture period detail."

From the previews, it looks like they expected to CGI-out modern-day and "Cincinnati" stuff.  So for example, when they're at the UDF, they might have intended to digitally change the sign.  When they're driving around downtown at night, they might have intended to clone out the modern street lights and give it all a mercury-vapor tint instead of LED.  That stuff costs A TON to do because it is ridiculously labor-intensive.
