PostSubject: MGP filming today (update: new pics in thread)   Tue Jul 06, 2010 5:17 pm

Supposedly MGP started filming at the Red Holman Car Dealership in Westland, MI. today.

http://www.onlocationvacations.com/2010/07/05/tuesday%E2%80%99s-lot-list-filming-locations-in-michigan-nyc-more-including-scream-4-and-the-big-year/

But it appears that they might also be filming in Garden City, MI (about 3.5 miles away) according to this blog. It is interesting that Gerry says he doesn't take pics when he is in costume, because he did all through The Bounty Hunter filming and has done so with other films. I even remember seeing himin costume in pics with fans back when he was filming Butterfly on a Wheel....

Now at 2:45
So I got back a little while ago from my mother’s work in Garden City where a filming of a movie went on. I went today because Gerard Butler is starring in the movie. It was pretty cool watching the people set up and work on the movie and then see how they worked.

We sat on the bed of this big truck, me, Greeneyes, and her mom because it was already hot out and the hull of the truck cast a big shadow over us as we sat on it. Greeneyes mother was rather impatient but, strangely, I wasn’t too upset by it. It was a lot like how my mother acted, so I just laughed internally. I got a few pictures of him from afar and then one while we were packed into a peanut gallery off to the side. When he saw us, Gerard Butler said:

“If you talk when he calls action, I will shoot you.” We all laughed, including crew, but he was totally serious. If we made him break character, it would be a lot of trouble for all of us. He later told us that we were very well behaved. It was here that I got this pretty good picture of him. He’s preparing to walk out the doors and the way the light hits him makes for a sweet picture.

Later I asked for a picture and he told me that he didn’t do pictures when he was in costume. I have to admit that I beat myself up the entire way home because I feel as though I should have known that he was busy and that pictures of him in costume were sort of not allowed. To console myself, I went and got some chili and then starbucks. Now I’m just sitting down for a bit before I have to go and hang out at the barn to see how Hope is doing when the vet arrives. I’ll update again later tonight to let you all know how that goes.

Is it lazy to update three times a day when I can just edit the first post? Probably, but I quite enjoy posting so you’re going to have to read through another one of my musings.

Much Love and Peace

Pink Capriccio

Pics from the set from the blogger are up. They are from yesterday -which I think was the first day of shooting. You can see the longer hair and tattoos on Gerry. His hair looks darker in the pics. Also it looks like he is sucking on a red lollipop. I hope it's a prop since it looks like one of the crew was holding it beforehand. I'm assuming he can unwrap and hold his own lollipops normally. (:
BTW- Plaid Shirt alert!!!

I like the pics with Gerry and the director Marc Forster, I'm assuming getting direction. Kind of interesting to see the process at work...

Machine Gun Preacher started filming on July 6th at Schoolcraft Community College in Garden City, Mi. Later the same day they moved to Stockdale’s Bar on Michigan Ave. where they converted the back of the bar into a Makeshift Pawn shop. And on July 7th they started filming early in the morning at Red Holman’s Chevy Dealership.

Thanks again Dallas!

I actually like the fact that we are hearing more about the movie making process than the tabloid fodder.

Update for Machine Gun Preacher: still just setting up Jakes in Melvindale, no actual filming as of yet.

Apparently there is set building going on at Jake's bar still, and there is nothing going on at the trailer park either. The trailer park is on Dix between Oakwood and Outerdrive.

In Photos: Gerard Butler on the set of ‘Machine Gun Preacher’
by Christine on July 10, 2010 ·


Thanks to Heather who sent us these pictures from the set of Machine Gun Preacher in West Bloomfield, MI on Thursday, July 8.

As you can see from the photos, the movie’s star, Gerard Butler, was filming scenes for the movie at a local home. In this true story, Gerry plays Sam Childers, a former drug-dealer who became a crusader for hundreds of Sudanese children forced to become soldiers.


See more photos of Gerard after the jump.

On Monday, July 12, it looks like Machine Gun Preacher will be filming at Jake’s Crossroads Bar & Grill in Melvindale, MI. If you spot Gerry in Michigan this summer, let us know about it at olv@onlocationvacations.com!

Hi Dallas, Thanks for sharing your story and pics. It must have been difficult to be so close, and yet so far. Who knows, maybe you'll run into Gerry when he's off set. Smile

Hi Samantha! Great to see you posting so quickly.

The story and pictures that Dallas posted were not her own. If those existed, I feel certain they would involve slapping, hair-pulling and a stern tongue lashing.

From OLV today:

Yes – they are filming right now – passed them on the way home from work, and saw Gerard – there’s an overturned trailer right next to dix… don’t know how long they will be there though…

(Apparently there is a tornado scene in a trailer park)

Quote :
Looks like the police officer was wrong. I just went by the trailer park again and they’re still there. I didn’t see Gerard, so I don’t know if he’s still there or not, but people have their cameras out taking pictures. The movie trailers behind Allendale are still there. The trailer park is very messy looking…a trailer is overturned, another trailer looks like it’s up in the air and there’s a lot of debris on the ground. I was thinking they were filming a scene that involved a tornado, but I don’t know what they’re doing…

Are they sure it was only a scene? Wink

Lots of storms here today, and in other parts of the Midwest.

“Machine Gun Preacher” is back filming in Melvindale, according to an On Location Vacations commenter who spotted signs again on Dix Rd. There are rumors they will be filming on Fort St. in Detroit next Monday, July 26.

Re: Michigan:
OK, things in MI have kind of turned into a cluster so hopefully we’ll be able to get it all straightened out today, here’s what’s been happening the past few days:
1) Machine Gun Preacher w/ Gerard Butler seems to be filming in Pontiac, MI, it was def in Pontiac on Tues and as far as we know will still be there on Wed but we don’t have an exact location at this point.

I wonder when they move to Africa?
