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:
http://wvxu.org/post/first-reviews-murder-gotti

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.

‘Stranger Things’ actor to star in Greater Cincinnati’s next film

An actor from the popular “Stranger Things” series has been cast for the next film that will be produced in Greater Cincinnati, WLWT reports.

Matthew Modine, who plays the scientist and “papa” of Eleven on the Netflix series, will play Coach Mike in the film “Chance.”

“Chance” will be filmed in Hamersville in Brown County starting June 3 and is based on a true story that took place there. It was co-written by the real life Coach Mike, Michael Daly, about a local boy who found happiness on the baseball field whose coach couldn’t save him from the pressures that led to the end of his life.

Cincinnati businesses to star in city’s next major film



When Cincinnati native Johanna Byer learned that the Netflix original film that she’s producing received tax credits to film in her hometown, she and her partners immediately dropped all plans to use another city as a stand-in for Los Angeles in the project they had been developing for several months to focus on the Queen City. Now, Cincinnati’s businesses, landmarks and artwork will take center stage.

“Cincinnati is a city that we’re going to feature in all its glory,” Byer said Tuesday at a press conference announcing that filming for “Point Blank” will begin Monday, Aug. 6.

Among local firms that will be featured are the typical Cincinnati favorites – Skyline Chili and Graeter’s (it’s taking the place of a scene planned for Ben & Jerry’s) – but also some new players including Sheakley Cos., Sibcy Cline Realtors and local breweries that have provided product to be used throughout the film.
