NEW ORLEANS, LA—Today, the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Economy issued a filming notice to New Orleans residents on the West Bank.
On Monday, March 25th through Friday, March 29th, a production company will be filming scenes in and around 2420 Murl Street in Algiers.
On Tuesday evening, from approximately 8pm to 11pm, filming will involve simulated gunfire and special effects explosions. Filming will be limited to private property and will not necessitate street closures. Uniformed officers and fire personnel will be on location to monitor safety.
