You may have seen the film trucks around Midtown and Station North this week. If you’re like me, and find yourself wondering what they are doing here, What Weekly has the scoop.
It seems as though Netflix, known and loved throughout the land for providing endless hours of programming to the streaming masses is trying its hand in producing.
After finishing up shoots in Annapolis and Havre De Grace, the show will now film throughout the city over the coming months. I recently spotted the Haddad Film trucks in Mt. Vernon, as well as in Station North at The Cork Factory, and today at the motel next to the Load of Fun.
So, Baltimore, keeps your eyes pealed for some celebrity action over the coming months… and it may also be wise to be on the look out for road closures as well.
via Press Release:
“House of Cards, the much-anticipated television series and political thriller from Executive Producer David Fincher and starring two time Academy Award-winning actor Kevin Spacey, will debut exclusively in the United States and Canada om Netflix, beginning in late 2012.
Fincher, the Oscar-nominated director of The Social Network and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, as well as Fight Club and Panic Room, will direct the pilot written by Beau Willimon (Farragut North and film adaptation, The Ides of March). A satirical tale of power, corruption and lies, “House of Cards” is based on the book and acclaimed BBC mini-series of the same name.
“House of Cards stars Kevin Spacey (Casino Jack, American Beauty, Seven) and was developed by Beau Willimon (The Ides of March). David Fincher (The Social Network, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Seven), Josh Donen (Spartacus: Blood and Sand), Academy Award-winner Eric Roth (Forrest Gump, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), along with Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti of Trigger Street Productions (The Social Network, 21) are Executive Producers for the series. Emmy Award-winner Andrew Davies and Michael Dobbs, who produced the original BBC series, also serve as Executive Producers, with Willimon as Co-Executive Producer. The “House of Cards” pilot is written by Willimon and will be directed by Fincher.”
