You’re driving down the street, and it’s suddenly blocked off. You notice these weird yellow signs with nonsensical letters or numbers. There’s unusual glow lighting up a neighborhood you can’t usually see from your house. What you might have here is a film company shooting in your town. It happens a lot, and you never know where they might pop up…until now.
The following is a semi-comprehensive list of films currently shooting, what they’re shooting, and where they’re shooting. We’ll be telling you where you might get to see the very famous, the kinda famous and (if all goes well) the soon-to-be famous. While we can’t list every single movie, television show, or student film in production, you’ll get a pretty good idea of what the heck is going on where all those people are buzzing about. Want to know where in the world are Matt Damon, Harrison Ford, Sylvester Stallone, Woody Harrelson, and Leonardo DiCaprio? Hit the jump for more.

With director Paul W.S. Anderson’s The Three Musketeers opening October 21, Summit Entertainment held a big press junket in London and I got the chance to head across the pond to interview the cast. Based on Alexandre Dumas’ classic story, The Three Musketeers stars Logan Lerman, Luke Evans, Ray Stevenson, Milla Jovovich, Orlando Bloom, Christoph Waltz, Matthew Macfayden, Gabriella Wilde and Mads Mikkelsen. In the reboot, “the hot-headed young D’Artagnan (Lerman) joins forces with three rogue Musketeers (MacFadyen, Evans and Stevenson). They must stop the evil Richlieu (Waltz) and face off with Buckingham (Bloom) and the treacherous Milady (Jovovich).” For more on the film, here’s eight clips.
During my interview with Lerman and Wilde, they talked about how they got involved in the project, the training, and the amazing real world locations they got to use. In addition, they told me about a great prank they did to a fellow cast member, what’s their karaoke song and the last video game they played, and I asked Lerman what’s up with the Percy Jackson sequel.

Over the past few days I’ve posted a ton of video interviews from WonderCon. While you may have thought they’d never end, my interview with Logan Lerman for The Three Musketeers is the last one.
For those playing catch up, The Three Musketeers is directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and it stars Lerman, Milla Jovovich, Matthew Macfadyen, Ray Stevenson, Luke Evans, Mads Mikkelson, Gabriella Wilde, Juno Temple, Orlando Bloom, and Christoph Waltz. Unlike the previous versions, Anderson’s version has been shot in 3D and it’s definitely been contemporized. For more on the film, here’s the trailer and here’s Adam’s write up of the WonderCon panel.
During the interview, Lerman talks about attending his first convention, tells a great story about doing karaoke in Japan, talks about filming on location in Germany, describes the film’s story and his role as D’Artagnan, talks about his involvement in Perks of Being a Wallflower and touches on the story, and I ask what’s the status of a Percy Jackson sequel.
