Just got a work email announcing some street closures downtown for the next couple months for filming of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Filming doesn't start for another few weeks, they're starting prep this weekend. This is all up on our local government website. http://www.filmneworleans.org/apes/ During the filming stage "citizens will be updated regularly as filming includes explosions, simulated gunfire and flashes of light."
Other stuff up for production this summer includes: American Horror Story and Hot Tub Time Machine 2.
