Promised Land and Out of the Furnace Continue Shooting, Other Local Movie News

It's been a busy spring (again) for movie-making in Pittsburgh.  Both Promised Land and Out of the Furnace have been shooting in the region since April.  In addition, the ultra low budget Monongahela also shot here this spring, featuring the Monongahela River!

Pittsburgh was also supposed to be the home of two TV series, but Hemlock Grove pulled out, apparently due to some tax credit dispute.

Trailers for movies shot here last spring are either out (Won't Back Down) or will be making a grand debut on the MTV Movie Awards on June 3 (Perks of Being a Wallflower).  The first poster for One Shot showed up at Cannes this week.  These movies will come out in the fall of 2012.

Foxcatcher, a movie starring Mark Ruffalo and Steve Carell, is sue to start filming in Western Pennsylvania this fall.
