20th Century Fox is shooting scenes today for Wall Street 2 just outside of Hunch’s offices here on 21st Street.
We New Yorkers try our best to act pretty jaded about these things, but come on – it’s sort of exciting to have a major theatrical release being shot on the street you use every day, right outside of your home or office.
It’s pretty rare to actually see a celebrity when these all-day shoots are happening. More often than not, the actual shooting is in a building somewhere, and all the trucks are just serving as equipment storage, wardrobe prep, and dressing rooms.
What always strikes me when observing production set-ups is just the sheer, massive scale of the logistics for a major shoot. A dozen or more tractor trailers filled with lighting, props, dressing rooms (and always lots of food) typically line the streets. Here are a few pics from about 10 minutes ago.
