Keeping up to speed locally, nationally

There are two stories to keep an eye on today. Locally, I reported on the making of "Streets of Blood" at the La. Wave Studio. The feature stars Val Kilmer, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson and Sharon Stone. One of the twists is that the movie is set in post-Katrina New Orleans, and a scene is being shot in a facility that wouldn't be in Shreveport were it not for hurricane damage in New Orleans.

(The wave tank was built for "The Guardian," which initially built the tank near Slidell but moved here in late 2005.)

Nationally, USA Today has an informative update on the possibility of a SAG strike at the end of the month. It's important for everyone to keep an eye on this.
