So I'm walking around downtown with my wife last night and we decide to walk through the law quad. We walk in there and notice a film crew just hanging around, two guys are playing some baseball (pitcher/batter) while everyone else is just standing around and assume its probably a smaller movie. We walk to the front steps of the law school and see a memorial to some professor (I didn't connect the dots immediately that this was part of the movie set) and I see some of the cards saying, "Get well Professor ____ " and I say, "whoa this is for a professor at UM", my wife replies while pointing at a picture, "Does that look like a Professor at UM?" Its a picture of Ed Harris. We walk through the rest of the law quad/movie set, they hadn't actually set up any major sets and were using the beautiful space as is.
So we get home and look up Ed Harris/Ann Arbor to see what movie it is. Its a movie called Salvation Boulevard with Ed Harris, PIerce Brosnan, Greg Kinnear, Marisa Tomei, Jennifer Connoly, and Jim Gafigan.
I just think its really cool to see movies filming in the Ann Arbor area since we all know how beautiful and awesome the UM campus/downtown area is. David Schwimmer was filming a movie with Clive Owen in the Diag a couple months called Trust and Scream 4 is set to film in Ann Arbor in the next couple months.
