‘Olympus Has Fallen’ Filming Scheduled to Pick Back Up Today
The weather lately has put off outdoor filming for the new Gerard Butler flick “Olympus Has Fallen.” Provided we don’t get any rain today, the downtown Shreveport schedule will be as follows.
9 a.m. – 2 p.m. — Interruptions on McNeill Street between Texas and Travis
1 – 2 p.m. — The closure of McNeill between Texas and Travis
2 – 4 p.m. — Traffic interruptions on Texas between McNeill and Louisiana
4 – 9 p.m. — Interruptions on Milam between Marshall and McNeill
Local film office director Arlena Acree says for this filming, you may see gun sniper actors on top of several downtown buildings around the Caddo Courthouse — so don’t be alarmed. She says there won’t be any film production downtown tomorrow, but possibly Friday. Then, you can expect to see special effects like gunfire, explosions and smoke.
