It’s Not Rory’s First Kiss.
Not since JL and I scooped the Washington Post in reporting (and displaying personal photographic evidence) that National Treasure was filming at Mt. Vernon has IRF given you such a behind the scenes glimpse of movie making.
This past weekend, the streets around my neighborhood were blocked off to traffic and movie filming trucks lined the street. Entrance to my building was achieved only by producing my drivers license with my address (I confess that I may have sung “I’ve got a golden ticket!” as I breezed past security). They’ve been very mum about the filming calling it “Rory’s First Kiss.” I am not so easily fooled, as demonstrated by this expose.
Upon entrance of my apartment, I heard the sound helicopters flying very close. I produced my Motorola Razr, thinking of IRF the whole time, I snapped this photo from my very own couch:
My interest was piqued, because, as the Motorola Razr does not show, there were TWO helicopters flying next to my window, and there were snipers hanging out… The only thing scarier than snipers flying outside my apartment would be Katie Holmes returning to the big screen…
But it is true, I walked downstairs, and on State Street, what did I see? All Chicago police cars would say CPD… What’s this GPD police car I see???
I saw camoflage Humvees roaming the streets and I became more and more intrigued. Using the power of my address-riddled Drivers License, I finagled my way past MORE security and found THIS truck on Wacker Drive:
Yes, that’s right, the City of Gotham Bomb Squad. Katie Holmes IS going to be on your neighborhood silver screen again… So when you go to see the next Batman movie, and you see a snipers flying down the Chicago River, look for me in my apartment, standing at the window, snapping cell phone photos.
