Scooper ‘Mattsoball’ sent in this update for the filming of Wanted, directed by Timur Bekmambetov and starring James McAvoy, Morgan Freeman and Angelina Jolie:
Just recieved an email from the building management where I work in Chicago, concerning the filming of Wanted.
“Please forward to all One North Wacker Parkers.
We would like to inform you that this Monday, May 14, from approximately 7 PM until 6 AM on Tuesday, Universal Pictures will be filming scenes for the upcoming feature film “Wanted” in the Downtown area. This will necessitate the full closure of Lower Wacker Drive, between Harrison St. and Michigan Ave. Additionally, they may need to continue filming on the following night, if so, Lower Wacker Drive will be closed again from approximately 7 PM on Tuesday, May 15, until Midnight. There will be limited access to and from the One North Wacker Parking garage.
We are doing this with the full cooperation of the Illinois Film Office, the Chicago Film Office, and the Chicago Police Department.”
Wanted is based on Mark Millar’s graphic novel series and hits theaters on March 28, 2008.
