Filming for “The Place Beyond The Pines” Starts Wednesday?
On location is reporting that “The Place Beyond The Pines” will film this Wednesday (July 27) in New York. His co-star Bradley Cooper is also expected to start filming. Let’s hope we will get some photos of Ryan on set!
Those of you hoping to catch a glimpse of the actors from “The Place Beyond The Pines” will have a chance when the crew “robs” the main branch of First National Bank of Scotia on July 27.
According to John Buhrmaster, president of First National, the branch, at 201 Mohawk Ave. in Scotia, NY, will be a location in the independent feature film “The Place Beyond The Pines”.
The movie, which stars Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendes and Ray Liotta, follows a professional motorcycle rider who turns to bank robberies to support his newborn son. When he crosses paths with a rookie police officer, they get into a violent conflict that spirals into a generational feud.
According to John Buhrmaster, most of the July 27 filming will take place inside the First National main branch, where a robbery scene will be set. Most of the bank employees will also be used as extras in the scene since Derek Cianfrance, the director, wants it to look real. “He doesn’t want to train people to act as tellers when he can have real tellers,” Buhrmaster said.
Other scenes for the movie which is slated for a 2013 release will be shot at Ellis Hospital , Schenectady High School, the Schenectady Police Station, and some as-yet-unnamed area restaurants, filming is expected to last until October.
Ides of March and Drive will been screening at the Toronto Film Festival which runs Sept 8-18th, so fingers crossed he'll get to that! The fact that they're stretching Drive out over every festival going especially at this end of the year looks like they're pushing it into the awards season to me.
