“White House Taken” Filming to Start Soon in Shreveport-Bossier

"The White House" -- My hubby snapped a pic of this on his way to work today.

Another big film comes to Shreveport-Bossier…and a big celebrity makes a repeat appearance for it. “White House Taken” is scheduled to begin filming next month. It stars Gerard Butler, whose first local movie-making experience was during shooting of “Playing the Field.”

Arlena Acree with the local film office tells me there’s a replica of the White House being constructed near CenturyLink Center (see photo), Huntington Park Golf Course on Pines Road will serve as the White House lawn, and Arthur Ray Teague Parkway in Bossier becomes Pennsylvania Avenue for the film. She says there will be lots of explosions and action-packed scenes — but those shouldn’t cause the roadway to be shut down. However, there may be traffic interruptions from time to time. We should see plenty of locals cast as extras in this movie.

This is just one of many film projects for our area during the upcoming summer. We’ll keep you updated on others!
