Across the Universe

I’ve seen a number of film shoots on my street and in the surrounding neighborhood (Washington Square Park) since we’ve moved here to W 8th St.

The whole street is blanketed with “No Parking” signs for Monday, indicating that a new romantic musical comedy (using Beatles songs) directed by Julie Taymor will be filming. I saw a couple of guys yesterday doing test shots of the New York Studio School across the street from our apartment, so I’m wondering if that will be the specific location filmed.

hey i am in the movie and i can tell you this. They are not shooting on 8th street. THey were filming exterior shots to replicate the look of the area. 8th Street is too much compicated to shut down for this movie. Check some streets south of houston in SOHO the next couple of weeks. Hint Hint

Just like to let the world know that my 9 year old niece started her movie career as a Liverpool street kid singing Hey Jude in this movie. I reckon Megan is a star of the future!
Good luck Megan Jones!
