'Microwave Park' is back on The Shreve's radar

The movie "Microwave Park" will film in The Shreve beginning May 6, according to the Louisiana Office of Entertainment Industry Development. More than a year ago, this project was set to start filming here but delays pushed it back. I'll check it out today. It was set to star Robert De Niro and 50 Cent, but I can't be certain if they are still attached. When I confirm who's in it, I'll let you know.

Another movie to be filmed in Shreveport this Fall is "Northern Lights" (according to productionweekly.com)

Description: "An action film set in the field of aerobatics -- death-defying stunt flying. The story follows the adventures of three young pilots, each determined to be the best at extreme flying, which encompasses taking their planes to 10 Gs and 300 mph, upside down, 10 feet off the ground."

Hi -
On the blog at the Glorioso Casting website, Val Kilmer and 50-Cent are named as starring in "Microwave Park."

Thanks for that. I noticed that as well. I'm in touch with the production folks and are waiting to confirm that 100 percent.
