I’m not sure what it is they are filming down here, but there is a full blown movie set less than 100 feet away from the entrance to the NYSE.
I’ve walked by it a few times now asking questions, but everyone is pretty tight-lipped.
Anyone have any ideas what this could be for?
Judging from the photo after the jump, it appears to involve a lot of guys in suits standing perfectly still on top of wooden boxes while the camera pans around them. That’s literally all I saw them doing for almost a full hour. Fascinating stuff!
Stan from ScreenJunkies just pointed out that it’s probably just some lame scene from Law & Order, because they’re always shooting that around here.
But if it does turn out to be for a full-blown movie (Not the Wall Street sequel, they’re years away from shooting that), then I can’t wait to listen to the director’s commentary on the DVD where they’ll no doubt mention something like, “We were shooting this scene during that big financial collapse on Wall Street in ’08. Man, that was a crazy shooting schedule! The bagels didn’t arrive till noon each day!”
