Expect Delays, Street Closings Around Shreveport Due to Filming
The Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office wants to alert motorists to some potential delays and street closures due to a movie filming locally over the next few days.
Since there are only two movies currently in production in Shreveport-Bossier and we've seen the 'TVCL' signs posted around town, we're assuming the hold-up will be for the M. Night Shyamalan flick The Vanishings at Caddo Lake. The other movie that's filming locally right now is The Man in the White Van.
Unfortunately, the production of Heart of a Lion, which was washed up to our area because of Hurricane Ida from New Orleans is now on hold until January and there's a distinct possibility production might move back to New Orleans which this writer thinks is ridiculous because it's about George Foreman, who just happens to be from East Texas!!!
Now that we're up to date on all of the movie productions slated for our area (It feels so good to type that!) Here's what you can expect traffic-wise thanks to our friends at the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office:
On October 14, Ellerbe Road – between Lakeside Subdivision and Robson Road – will be closed intermittently from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. The 11900 block to 12100 block of Ellerbe Rd. located in Southeast Caddo Parish will be affected.
LA-169 at Twelve Mile Bayou – between I-49 and LA-1 – will also be closed intermittently from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on October 14; 1 p.m. on October 15 to 1 a.m. on October 16; and again from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on October 18.
Speaking of staying up to date with all of the current film projects in NWLA, this website always has some great information!
Hopefully, this potential IATSE strike won't affect production.
